The Missing Years

The Missing Years…

The first thing Jesus said to His disciples was, ‘Follow Me.’ If you call yourself a disciple, this must be the will of your life. A disciple follows his or her Rabbi. To be godly, you have to follow God.

How do you follow Jesus? What is the first thing Jesus did in His ministry? Jeaus became human – specifically, a little child. He became a little child so you also could become a little child. It’s one thing to be a child. It’s another thing to become a little child. Anyone can be a little child.

But only God and those who follow Him can become a little child. God emptied Himself to become a little child and He had to learn how to be a little child.

You also need to do the same and learn how to be a little child, to trust again, to be humble again, to be lighthearted again, and to let another carry your burdens. God became a little child.

That’s a miracle – so you also could know the miracle of becoming a little child again. Become little again. Become a child. It’s only natural, when you follow God.

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Luke 18:16-18

Today, seek to think and see all things through the eyes of a beloved child of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
