"People were bringing little children
to Jesus to have Him touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this, He was indignant.
He said to them, 'Let the little children
come to Me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such
I tell you the truth, anyone who will not
receive the kingdom of God like a little
child will never enter it.
And He took the children in His arms,
put His hands on them and blessed them."
Mark 10: 13- 16
We must be like little children in innocence and harmlessness if we desire to enter the kingdom of God. We must trust our heavenly Father to provide all our needs just as these little children trust their own parents to provide for all their needs.
Blessed Be Your Name

"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the
painful trial you are suffering, as though
something strange were happening to you.
But rejoice that you participate in the
sufferings of Christ, so that you may be
overjoyed when His glory is revealed.
If you are insulted because of the name
of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit
of glory and of God rest on you.
If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer
or thief or any other kind of criminal or
as a meddler.
However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not
be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that
For it is time for judgment to begin with the
family of God; and if it begins with us, what will
the outcome be for those who do not obey the
Gospel of God?"
1 Peter 4: 12- 17
If we are suffering body pains, heartaches and sorrows due to painful trials, rejoice that we are sharing in the suffering of Christ. When His glory is finally revealed, we will share in that same glory for then, our mortal bodies shall be transformed to become like the glorified body of Christ. There shall no longer be any pain, and the Lord shall wipe away all tears from our eyes as we share in His glorious presence forevermore.

"Seek the Lord while He may be found;
Call on Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, and He
will have mercy on him, and to our
God, for He will freely pardon.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts
neither are your ways My ways,
declares the Lord.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55: 6-9
Seek the Lord while He may still be found and freely accept the forgiveness for your sins. There will come a time when heaven's gate will be seemingly closed to sinners and the message of salvation will no longer be heard nor felt amidst the great tribulation that will befall the earth.
