In Matthew chapter 19, verses 13 through 15, we are told that some parents had brought their children to Jesus so he could bless them, but the disciples scolded the parents for doing so. Jesus said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
These verses hearken back to the previous chapter, Matthew 18, verses 3 and 4, where Jesus tells us that unless we become like little children, we won’t be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus doesn’t say, in the verses from chapter 19, that Heaven belongs to children, but to those who are “like these children”.
When I first came back to Christ after interacting with him as the consciousness of the Sun while using a legal substance over a few years, I didn’t have a clue what this meant. I thought that I would just go to church and read the Bible and wear a cross around my neck, but that little else would change.
I could not have been more wrong. God and Christ came into my life and drastically reshaped it. I found that many of my habits and ingrained behaviors of decades had to change. They made many positive changes in my life, and have pushed me to do things I never thought I’d be capable of.
Over and over again, I have had to submit my will to God and Christ, and I learned that being a follower of Jesus after accepting his Salvation is about submitting to his spiritual authority over my life and trusting him and God to lead me down a path that gives me a life that doesn’t endanger my soul but instead moves me closer in my thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to the innocence and purity of Christ.
I am far from perfect and never will be, but I know that with each day that passes Christ is guiding me down a path toward the spiritual purity that he knows will be the safest destination for my soul until I can join him and God in heaven.
