Topic: BE A CHILD OF GOD

Text: Matthew 18:3-4

📖3….”And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
📖4….Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Message

🔥The question of why God chooses children and wants us to be children, is a very thought provoking one. Who is a child? According to Jesus’ definition in Matthew 18:3, a child is a change of direction, a new walk with God without worldly ambitions to be the greatest. It is a conversion from selfish ambitions to selfless ambitions. It is a period without the lust for money, power and fame. A child here is not the size of the body, but the contents of the heart. Children always see themselves as equals. Some of us that have become so great in titles, can they still see others in the faith as their equals?

🔥🔥The essence of the Gospel, is to reconcile us with God, and reconcile us with us, according to 2 Corinthians 5:18. This is because God made us like himself… Genesis 1:26; hence he sent Christ to reconcile us from our pride of big names, back to His humility. If God sent Christ to bring us to him, then, he actually wants us to be like him, and be addressed as some gods…Psalms 82:6. If God is erasing what makes him bigger than us, why are we continuously using titles to make ourselves bigger than others?

🔥🔥🔥God wants us to be children, for us to be the greatest, and enter into his kingdom – Matt 18:3-4. He wants to fight for us if we give him perfect praise as children. He wants to reveal the simple and pure truth to us – Matt 11:25, and teach us the importance of growth – 1 Pet 2:1-2. God wants to show that the children we call weak, are stronger and wiser in the hands of God than adults without God – 1 Cor 1:20,25, 1 Sam 17:48-50. So, thou Man of God, Bishop of God, Reverend of God, Archbishop of God, desire to grow into a Child of God without bitterness, hurting, rancour, revenge, and pride of ownership of anything on earth, but faith in God as children do to their biological parents, and you shall find the strait gate and the narrow way…Matt 7:14.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly father, help me to retain my spiritual birth size which is born again as a child, into your kingdom, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, whichever wrong direction the pride of adult Christian is leading me because of titles, convert me back to your humble child, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, as I render child-like praise to you, fight for me against every unseen battle, in Jesus’ name.
