Imitating Children

Passage: Hebrews 1:1-4, Hebrews 2:5-12, Mark 10:13-16
Service Type:

Jesus is the Son of God and Son of Man who has a position exalted above all others in the kingdom of God, as described in Hebrews.  Yet with this position he becomes indignant when His disciples try to “protect Him” from little children.  In a society that valued children mainly as heirs to carry on the family name, Jesus valued them for their simple faith and trust in God, and urged His followers to imitate that faith.

We should strive for a childlike (not childish) faith.
