Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.
The Kingdom of God is directly opposite to the powers of this world.
Many things that are appreciated in the world are rejected or forbidden by the Kingdom of God.
The world is self-centered and strives to give the body as much pleasure as possible. Fame, luxury, and wealth are the standards of the world for a good life. That sin and sensual lusts are carried out to the maximum in this way of living, doesn’t upset the people who live in such a worldly existence. In fact, they enjoy it, and encourage others to join them.
The kingdom of God, on the other hand, is justice, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself
In order to enter the Kingdom of God, to have dinner with Jesus and to have access to His justice, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, you must receive it as a child.
A child always blindly trusts that his parents or guardians have his best interests in mind, and that they are able to offer him everything he needs; in this trust he receives everything that the parents or guardians give him.
God is our creator, but also our heavenly Father.
So when He makes us a partaker of His Kingdom, we don’t need to know everything about His Kingdom beforehand, before we receive it.
Our Father is a good Father Who absolutely will not give any bad gifts to His children!
If you want to receive the Kingdom of God and enter it, you must receive it like a child.
