The Wonder Of It All

Matthew 18 1-4  The Message

“At about the same time, the disciples came to Jesus asking, “Who gets the highest rank in God’s kingdom?” For an answer Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, “I’m telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you’re not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God’s kingdom. What’s more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it’s the same as receiving me.”




Watch Child faces

Aglow in Candlelight

Awestruck by Christmas

Amazed by the Wonder of it all

Know this

As you smile over them

The Father Smiles over you

As you hope for their delight

The Father Hopes for yours

As you sing that lullaby 

To comfort Child heart

To banish Child fears

So The Father sings His Song over you

Lean in 

Feel the Depth of His Love for you

Be Amazed by the Wonder of it all

Be Awestruck by Christmas

Let your Child Heart Glow 

In the Light of Father’s Love
