Hello This is a Test

Luke 18:15-17
15 One day some parents brought their little children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But when the disciples saw this, they scolded the parents for bothering him.
16 Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. 17 I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”


18:15 People brought even infants to Jesus in order that he might touch them, i.e., bless them (cf. 5:13; 6:19). Were bringing suggests that this was a frequent occurrence in Jesus’ ministry.
18:16–17 Let the children come. Jesus’ attitude toward children contrasted significantly with that of other religious leaders in Judaism. In most ancient cultures children were regarded as a burden until they were physically strong enough to contribute to the family. For to such belongs does not mean children automatically belong to the kingdom but that the kingdom belongs to “such”—that is, to those who possess childlike trust. like a child. That is, in childlike faith and trust in Jesus.


  • One thing is for sure... what we model as parents says way more about what we value than the things we say. Even if we're desperate for our kids to meet Jesus and follow Him, their little eyes are always watching us. And if our behaviors, values and priorities don't line up with the things we preach to them, they won't buy it. We must point them to Jesus with the way we choose to live our lives and the things we prioritize. What do these things in your life say about what's most important to you? 

  • We must lead our kids towards Jesus. We do this by our example. We do this by our discipline. We do this in family worship and at mealtime prayer. We do this by bringing our children under the Word in corporate worship. We do this in faith. What do YOUR kids see when their little eyes are watching you?


  • That we would model what we want our families to value. 
  • That our lives would show we are sold out to Jesus.

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory!

5. Why do I follow Jesus? I follow Jesus because Jesus rose from the dead proving that He is the way, the truth and the life.
