TEXT: MATTHEW 19:13-15
(13) Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
(14) But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
(15) And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
KEY VERSE: LUKE 18:16
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Jesus said bring the children to Me. Dedicate them to Me. Commit the children to Me. Jesus is saying, bring children to Me, I want to lay my hands upon them. I want to bless them. Children should be dedicated to Jesus, not just the ceremony of prayer of dedication in the Church but as they grow to know between good and evil, they should be led to Jesus. Lead them to Jesus. Ask Jesus to come into their hearts. Let Jesus come into their lives and change them. He told you to bring them to Him. This is a divine instruction.
And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
This is a responsibility of both the husband and his wife. Take the child and lead him to Jesus. Do not mind how many times the child has been led to Jesus; continue to do so until you see the evidence. When the child is led to Jesus, there is something you must still do. Teach the child God’s Word.
Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Teach your children the doctrines of the Word of God; salvation, water baptism, faith in God, etc…
