I don’t think many people understand this… I don’t really understand it myself, probably because it just seems so against me… its against a lot of humanity actually.
As Christians… what are we supposed to be? Confident? Kind? Honest? Helpful? All that jazz? Well yeah… but I mean… here’s the mind bending thing…
Is what we’re actually supposed to be…..
Just sit and think a minute… We’re supposed to be ‘Helpless.’
Where am I getting this?
We are God’s children correct? We should be like his children… he our father. A child is helpless. A child should fully rely on its parent for guidance and survival. Without that guidance… a child would surely die…
18 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
This just occured to me out of the blue a few days ago…
It’s mind bending to me, because… I mean… all the Christian metal I listen too and all… I mean it calls for a sense of spiritual warfare and all that… and THAT MAKES SENSE… but I mean… its kind of like an afterthought… if that makes any sense to you all…
Because above and beyond all we need to be HELPLESS
Fully reliant on God… for everything. A baby can’t do anything on its own. Think about it. Have you ever seen a really young child? It relies on the parents for EVERYTHING! It cannot survive without being helpless and guided by its parents. It is no different with God… We must be helpless so he can guide us… otherwise… we will die… spiritually and physically.
It’s really an overwhelming thought.
Yes we can be strong and confident and defend our faith and all those things those spiritual warriors do… but it is impossible to do that without God’s presence… without his guidance… without the empowering of the Holy Spirit through God.
We must be helpless. We must be his children… otherwise… we will never see the glory of Heaven.
