Chapter 10:15 “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”
Chapter 10:16 And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.
Notice Jesus uses the child once again as the example. One of the characteristics I love about children is their openness. That is what Christ is looking for: coming to Him like the mess we are and establishing that open relationship with Him. Quit trying so hard and yoke up with the Master. The question to concentrate on is: What truly stands between you having a personal intimate love relationship between you and God? What is holding you back?
