Mark 10:15 ” I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

The first time you heard the Gospel, what filters did it go through in your head?  If your background is in Engineering, maybe you applied scientific and mathematical principles.  Or if your background is in Liberal Arts, maybe you dissected, examined and scrutinized the message from a different point of view.  But if you were like me, in the end,  we had to take the Gospel at face value…believing it was the truth, and deliberately and readily receiving it as such.  Being receptive to the Gospel demands a leap of faith…of embracing something with child-like faith that we don’t fully understand…but trusting God will show us the way.  In the verse before this,  Jesus tells the disciples to, “Let the little children come to Me.”  We are His little children, and that’s how He expects us to come to Him…filled with child-like faith, confidence, and hope.
