This past weekend, we continued our series, “God in Blank Spaces,” at Eastbrook Church by looking at Matthew 19:13-15 on Jesus and the little children. In a world where 353,00 babies are born every day and one new child is born every 8 seconds in our country, how is God at work?
In Jesus’ day and time, children were one of the most uncounted and unvalued people in society, yet Jesus did not treat them this way. Because the love of God is at the heart of who He is, Jesus shows us the heart of God for children, even children living in the midst of the blank spaces of our world.
Here is the video and sermon outline of the first message of this series, “God of the Little Ones.”
The Triune God, the Mission of God and Jesus’ Incarnation
The Triune God Who Sends and Gives (John 3:16; 14:16-17; 20:21-22)
Jesus shows God’s Character and Activity (Colossians 1:15; John 5:19)
Jesus, His Followers and Children (Matthew 19:13-15; 18:5-6)
“Let the little children come…”
“Do not hinder them…”
“The kingdom belongs to these…”
