Family Sunday


Mark 10 (The New Living Translation)
13 ¶  One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him.
14  When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
15  I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”
16  Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.

1.   How wonderful it is to see parents bringing their children to Jesus.
2.   It is wrong for the servants of Jesus to try and keep anyone from coming to Jesus.
3.   We are never a bother to Jesus.
4.   Jesus can get angry …
5.   The truth is that no one will enter the Kingdom of God unless they come in like a child.

How does a child come to Jesus?
·        With childlike faith
·        Without skepticism
·        Without cynicism
·        Impressionable
·        Willing to believe
