In Luke 18, verses 16 and 17, Jesus says, after the disciples had scolded some parents for bringing their children to him, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”
It is really useful to reflect on what Jesus means by these verses. We know that he is very straightforward about his commands that we love others as ourselves, and love God with all our heart, all our mind, and all our soul. These are not just suggestions, but actual commands that he wants gave to us to live our lives by, in order that we may emulate his great love for us by loving God and other people the same way that they both love all of us.
Christ made it very clear that he wants us to obey him and God as our spiritual authorities, the same way that children obey their parents. He and God are spirits, and they love us with a love that is so unfathomably deep that it is impossible to describe. They want nothing less than to be our guides on this journey through our earthly incarnation, and allow us to be led home to heaven by them.
In order to do this, we have to give up self-will and the sense that we are authorities over our own lives. We have to seek out their teachings in the Bible, and try our hardest to live by these teachings so that we can emulate the spiritual sacredness of our Heavenly Father, and his son, Jesus Christ. We have to become their spiritual children; we all truly already are, but we have to absorb this into our deepest being and seek guidance from them, along with obeying their teachings.
We have to accept the Salvation that Christ promises to us by repenting of our sins and asking forgiveness, and living our lives in an obedient manner to Christ and God. In this way, we open ourselves up to them to allow them to purify our souls, and to change whatever it is that needs changing in our lives, so that they can guide us on our spiritual path and give us the direction we need to join them in our heavenly home when our time comes.
