Last Sunday was very special as our children and youth were the ones who ministered to us.  The Cross Road Worship Team led us so powerfully into the presence of the Lord and our Sunday School children blessed us with testimonies, poetry and song.  They even participated in the preaching of the message, Jesus Loves Children from Mark10:13-15 with sister Janet Senior.  Please hear the hearts of our children in the Reflections below.  Thanks to all our children, teachers and parents who made our Children Sunday such a blessing.  Special congratulations to our sister Sylvia Cha Shue who received the Children’s Teacher of The Year Award for 2014.

Reflections

Last Sunday our message,  Jesus Loves Children from Mark 10:13-15 came to us from our sister Janet Senior and three of our children,  Isabel Ogilvie , Johan Gordon and Jabari Barnes.

Isabel told us what Jesus’ love for the little children meant to her. She told us that Jesus loves the little children is a simple fact with an important meaning which can be seen in many instances in the Bible. For example, when he stopped his disciples from sending away the children who had come for his blessing. Jesus said instead, “Let the little children come onto me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matt 19:14). His love for the children is unwavering so that heaven belongs to them.  Another instance of Jesus’ love for the children can be found in Matthew 18:3, when he told the people that they must be like the children to enter His kingdom and that children are precious. This truly displays his love for them.

But what makes the children so special To Jesus?  Their faith - children are so pure, innocent and have such simple yet strong faith. This is how Jesus wants us all to be. While other adults look down on children as unimportant and dismiss any opinions that they might have. Jesus views children as special and important. Their humility - Jesus admires the humility children possess. In this aspect, you could say that they are like Jesus.

Finally

How will you respond to Jesus as a little child this week in faith and humility?  How will you show at least one child the love of Jesus? Remember that if you receive one child in the name of Jesus, you receive Him (Matt 18:5).

In His love,
