As a Little Child ( αλφα )

3 Feb

God says in his word, Except you have the faith as a little child you can not enter into the kingdom of Heaven! Mark 10:15 “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”

Just one example of the powerful words of our Lord and Savior. Words that took on new meaning for me personally when I was given a glimpse of what that meant in real life.

Thanks to my wife being very strong in this, she and I agreed and promised each other that we would never lie to or tell half truths to our son. And one day as I answered the door for some friends of ours who were coming for dinner and as I was taking their coats, our son came down the stairs and he was asked by our friends, “Did santa claus bring you anything for Christmas.” And our son put his hands on his hips stuck out his chest and forcefully said, “MY DADDY SAID” there is no such thing as santy claus.

My viewing this exchange left me exclaiming, Oh My God, that is the meaning of “Faith”. The unabashed staunch belief, with absolutely no ounce of doubt in his entire body, he replied, “MY DADDY SAID…”

That same conviction is what God calls Faith, and references in His Word several times. That we have engraved in our heart and soul that resounding belief, My Heavenly Father says!!

Because this to me has broadened my understanding in every aspect of my life I have decided to do a series on just this one subject and how it ties into every aspect of my life and more importantly into my approach to God’s Word.

We will discuss how the trickery of the devil that would take us away from our faith and believe the seemingly little white lies like:

1) The lie, “times have changed we no longer live in a world like….”, When God says, “Jesus the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8

2) The Lie, “you can not see into my heart…”, When God says , “by their fruits you will know them.” Matthew 7:16 – 20

My prayer for myself, those I love and each person alive today, is that they come to find the true God’s Word and the true meaning of faith in their life.

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord! Joshua 24:15
