The Young and the Restless
The innocence of a newborn is both beautiful and dangerous. Beautiful because it offers us a fading glimpse of purity. Dangerous because a baby is helpless and entirely dependent. Jesus once told His disciples that unless they entered the Kingdom like an infant, they would never get in. This raised more than a few questions among His followers. Join us for part two of Kingdom People, where we will learn the difference between the young and the restless.
Kingdom people know they are __________________ to enter the Kingdom on their own.
Kingdom people do not become __________________ by wealth and possessions.
Kingdom people trust Jesus to be their __________________.
Prayerfully answer the following questions:
Have you acknowledged your sin and your powerlessness to save yourself?
What has entangled and kept you from following Jesus?
Is the Lord your portion?
This week’s readings come from passages describing times when Jesus pronounced someone to be saved. As you read, notice the similarities and differences between each person’s encounter with Jesus. Reflect on your own salvation experience and thank God for His grace.
