Receiving the Kingdom Like a Child (message outline)

Receiving the Kingdom Like a Child
Mark 10:13–16
Stuff Jesus Talks About, But We Don’t

How children help us overcome barriers that blind us to the heart of the gospel.

Recognize how persistent our stubbornness is

Mark 10:13–14a (ESV)
13 And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant 

Recognize that our stubbornness offends God

Mark 10:14 (ESV)
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.

Receive God’s kingdom understanding that we are powerless to help ourselves

Mark 10:15–16 (ESV) 15 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
