Like a Child // Easter 2018

Bible Text: Luke 18:15–17 |

There is something about how a kid sees Jesus that is the key for all of us to see Jesus. Could it really be that simple? Do we, as adults, overcomplicate and encumber the understanding of who God is and how we ought to relate to him? For our many guests at Harvest this weekend, that question is critical. Many people don’t come to faith in Christ because too many churches, pastors, theologians, and philosophers have complicated the whole thing. In essence, our sophistication has made God inaccessible in our minds. For Easter Sunday, we are going to take a look at Luke 18:15-17 to try to get a handle on that very thing. In this brief encounter that Jesus has with some children, he explains the radical and simple truth that, “Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
