Children are beautiful because they trust. They trust and expect good things to happen. That is one reason why the gospel is so well-received by children. They hear good news of God's love for them and expect that it is true. Jesus said that we need to be like little children to enter into the kingdom of Heaven. “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven." Jesus in Matthew 18:3 We need to accept the truth about ourselves and God, trust in Jesus, and expect good things to happen! Expect to receive all of the spiritual blessings purchased for you by Christ! Be like a kid and trust God because He's a good, good Father!
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. Psalm 8:2 Kids love to sing and worship God. Most children sing out the truth about Jesus without hesitation! It's simple for them! Children recognize that God is amazing, and they like to sing about it! Let's worship like children, God's children! As an aside, worship pushes back the power of Satan. As worshipers of the King of Heaven, we bring the King's throne into our neighborhood and He rules triumphantly. Yet You are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. Psalm 22:3
To Share! Children are always willing to share the love and light of Jesus with others. They go out of their way to invite others to learn. They love truth and enjoy sharing truth with others! Children are not worried about adult concerns. They don't have prejudices or inhibitions. Mostly, children enjoy sharing a good thing with others! Jesus is the best, so let's share Him with everyone!
To Hope! Children see the best in others and looks for good things to happen. Hope is excited and optimistic. Children usually expect good things to happen in the near future. Anchor your soul into the hope that Jesus Christ gives. Hope for salvation and sanctification! Hope for victory and freedom in daily life. Hope for the abundant life! Invest some time today and think about all of the hope that you have as a child of God. The King's kids live in an expectation of grace, victory, and salvation! "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
Pray for God's children's ministry here in the Philippines. Pray that God will raise up a generation of worshipers who will in turn pass their faith on to their children and children's children.
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise belongs to you and to your children and to all who are far off, to all whom the Lord our God will call to Himself.” Acts 2:38-39
We're a family on mission to bring the good news of Jesus to the Philippines.
