Pastor Vince Giardino wanted to give to us something he was impressed with. The phrase “Little Children”.
He opened with 1Jn 2:1-2. How Apostle John called the believers “Little Children”.
“Little Children” is mentioned 9 times in the book of 1John. Paul used the same term of relationship when speaking to the Galatians in Gal.4:19. Pastor used the term “Book Ends” to illustrate (1st) “Born Again”, (2nd) “Till Christ be formed in you.” It is important that we see ourselves as little children growing into Christ.
It is important enough that Jesus said, (Mat.18:3), that unless one convert and become as little children there is no other means by which to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Also, Mat.19:14, The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to the Little Children.
What a beautiful message of how we are Born Again, as little children, spiritually, and to keep that recognition of what we are in God’s eyes, through Christ.
Pastor brought up how in 1John alone, the word “Love” is mentioned 40 times. To love God and the brethren and to grow in that love because God made a way for relationship through Jesus, who by taking it all upon Himself, has removed all wrath and all guilt. No other is “The Way”; “Love” being the fruit of that relationship.
