Let The Children Come

Let The Children Come - by Keith Cook

"But Jesus said, 'Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me: for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.'" Matthew 19:14

Little Robey was a handsome and rowdy young man. Each day he would be the first to come to the park where we were ministering. He was a handful and our whole team almost dreaded who would have to play and keep up with him.

Every day he would be at your heel like a puppy dog, wanting attention and love. In the middle of one service, Robey asked Jesus to be his Savior. There were no thunderbolts. We could not hear the angels singing, but we were very excited for him.

One day, my wife Joan, spent some time with Robey and found out that he had been sneaking over to be with us. His father, he said, was not a Christian and would not let him come to church. He said that if his father knew where he was, he would beat him.

I got to thinking about Robey and how God had sent us to that park so He could slip little Robey into His Kingdom. We were not a big church building with pews and stained glass. Even though his dad had rejected the church, we were love and joy to Robey. We were Christ's hands and feet to spread the love of Jesus.

Robey will fight battles all his life in order to slip into Christian situations, but now he will have the Holy Spirit guiding him and comforting him. When we left Robey, we were all in tears. We must let the children come to Jesus. He cares for them. He sends us to them.

Open your eyes! Care and share!
