Bible Challenge – Matthew 18

“I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.”  v.3-4 (NLT)

We all want to be great! This is why little boys where will tie a blanket around their neck so they can morph into a great super hero.  This is why adults do a lot of good works so they can feel good about themselves and others can be inspired by them. While these things are fun and good things to do, they in return, do not make us great! Jesus says the key to greatness is found in the innocence  of a child.

As we go through life we collect baggage from words said, actions done, places visited, and people lost. This baggage shapes who we are and forms our beliefs. This baggage can push away from God, our cause us to see our great need for God.  To become like a child means to drop all those things and learn how to live again. It means to look at life in a new perspective. A child sees the good, trust much, and are moldable. Do these three words describe you?

Sin will keep us from being great, and it will keep us from Christ. It’s part of our human nature! Until we deal with our own sin, by confessing it to God and asking for forgiveness through Christ, we will continue in the pursuit of greatness never to achieve what we were looking for!

Today, How will Jesus word impact you? Do you have the humble, innocent heart of a child, or has the baggage you’ve collected through the years kept you from the freedom found in Child like Faith?
