|Luke 18:17 |
17 Truly I say to you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."2
2 Whoever will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. Mark! You cannot please God unless you have crucified your lusts and affections on the inward cross of self-denial. You must be restored to the innocence of a little child. You must be purified, to become as innocent as the day you were born. Otherwise, you will be banned from heaven. And, this can only be done by the grace of God's changing power, to purge the desires and pride from your heart by faith, making you fit for the company of heaven.
