    Matthew 18:3 and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
    18:4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

    Mark 10:15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

    Jesus taught us that to believe the message of the scriptures in like manor to the way the Small People we raise from birth. Does anyone, other than myself remember when their dad was the toughest and smartest man in the whole world? My kids were that silly and I had to be careful because if I said it to them it was the Gospel of My Daddy!

    God calls the Followers of Jesus, His Children. (Gal 3:26) On other places on the Internet I am clled a fool because I have taken the position that if the One Omnipotent, Omnipresent, God/Creator of everything we can see, touch, or sense has been Created by Him, I believe it, period. My son did not ever question me until he was a young man and now he is middle aged and once more doe not doubt me and that is a perfect picture of how I believe God.

    That, being saving faith, where do you stand in God's Service? You're not required to answer anyone but yourself and God!

    Grace saves -His grace -our faith in His grace.
    Tough trying to become as a little child, surrendering all to Him as He did for us. But its the only way.
    Service? no longer... but when I was able I did whatever I was asked to do

    I, fully, understand! I am in the final stage of MS and the doctors are doing their best to keep me going but I can never teach a class again nor can I take the Pulpit when Pastor is gone on Mission. He3ck I can't even sing nor make it to Church any more but I do love God, just the same.

    When bad things happen to us, and we can still see the goodness of God, that speaks to the very foundation of our faith. God is good, all the time. Even in times of sorrow, pain, and trouble. Your testimony is an encouragement to me.

    If no one else feels that, God has used it then, thank-you.

    Bless the Lord. For us, the less we are, the more Christ is. Like what John the Baptist said.
    New Living Translation
    He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
    i know this is not referring to disease, but in one way or the other it happens to all believers.
    His legacy in you, has Blessed the Lord.
