A Child’s Anticipation

A Child’s Anticipation.  The passage of Mk.10:15 is not talking about getting to heaven. It is talking about the authority, power, rule of God. Mk.10:15  “…Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”  “As a child” paints the picture of a child who is always full of anticipation. Embracing that picture, we will not try bringing to God our agendas, preconceived ideas, preferences, and hearts/minds with no imagination available to God. Out of the four million Israelites trapped against the Red Sea, how many do you think used their imagination to encourage the others that God would use the rod of Moses to part the sea so they could cross over on dry ground? They were stuck in the mindset of powerless servants who would not allow their minds to go beyond the typical thought processes of a subjugated people. I for one am thankful that a merciful God sent the prophet Moses with a word for them that would help them move beyond those old mental habits.(This is the eighth excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation”.)
