Like a Little Child

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 5

Mark 10:13-16  (ID: 2824)

The picture of Jesus welcoming little children is familiar to many, but this story is much more than an example of Jesus' kindness. Alistair Begg teaches us an important lesson about the kingdom of God: it belongs to the weak, helpless, and unimportant. Salvation cannot be earned by our status or good works, but must be received like a child receives an undeserved gift.


Let the Children Come to Me

13And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. 14But 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. 15Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
