Jesus and Children - Mark 10:13-16

As we see Jesus rebuke His disciples for not letting kids approach Him, Pastor Joe encourages us to be sure we are bringing our own kids to Jesus. He also points out how the hardening of our hearts by the world can make if difficult to embrace the Kingdom of God like a child.

  1. And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
  2. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
  3. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
  4. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
