Mark: Day 20 - Faith Like a Child
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the Gospel of Mark.
The Word - "And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Mark 10:13-16 ESV
A Thought - Remember when you were a child and you just took you parents at their word? Timmy, finish your dinner and you'll get dessert. Timmy simply believed. I believe Jesus wants us to simply take him at his word. Believe in him and have eternal life; no cynicism, no advanced exegesis, no apologetics, just simple, uncomplicated, child-like faith.
A Prayer - Lord, You are the very embodiment of truth. Help me to simply take you at your word. I want to trust and believe with the simple faith of a child. Change my heart, Lord. - In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
