Saw a group of kids stream off an activity bus this morning screaming and yelling as they inhabited the park. Immediately two verses entered my head. (1st Matt. 16:18 and 2nd Luke 18:16) The gates of hell will not prevail against the church and the kingdom of God is made up of those like children.
I imagined what should be happening on earth. The children of God streaming out of meetings telling others about their amazing Father, laying hands on the sick and asking “Daddy heal em'”. Yeah, this is what I long to see where the child-likeness of the sons and daughters of God supercedes conventional wisdom and the Kingdom of God spreads like wild fire.
Yeah, the Kingdom of God is like a group of kids with red shirts running and screaming inhabiting a park.
