13 And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 15 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
When Jesus was telling of His new Kingdom, He said, what we do to the least of them - we do to Jesus. Jesus was telling of Heaven.
This Lent, let us draw from Jesus blessing the Children to know our hearts to Jesus in open sincerity - this is where He dwells and is pleased. Lent is the preparation to draw close to Jesus in trust, confidence and love.
A blessing and good to be near You.
I will make the Sovereign LORD my refuge.
Let us draw near to Father God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with Jesus' Grace.
Father God, for ourselves and the people we love and are given - We will call upon Jesus, knowing we will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. We will have confidence to enter the holy places by the Highest Name above all names - Jesus the Lord. Amen.
