Vacation Bible School

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV


I love to read the daily passages of Bible Gateway.com


How appropriate this passage is today.  Our church began Bible School last night and we had around 65 children attend in spite of the rain.  The church was full of laughter and song the entire night.  Ms. Audra, our children’s minister along with many volunteers transformed the halls and classrooms in to “The greatest show on earth.” 

 I can’t help but to think about what it might have been like to be a child when Jesus was the greatest show on earth!  Just imagine running up to Him and having him sweep you up in his arms.  A gentle kiss on the cheek, a soft stroke on the head.  Talk about feeling loved. 


How wonderful it is to know that we are all His children!  Of course we cannot physically feel his strong arms around us, but we know he is there calling us, waiting for us to come to Him like “little children” expecting nothing more than to be loved. 


“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them…”  Thank you Jesus for wanting me!
