The disciples began to argue and became “preoccupied” with who would be the greatest among them.
JESUS SEES ALL THIS.
HE TAKES A CHILD.
HE SETS THE CHILD IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM
BEFORE HE SPEAKS.
The Lord is really serious about how we lead children, and about the example that we are to them. He wants them trained up in THE WAY. We must not dismiss the little ones.
It’s time to train like never before. The days of lethargy and apathy in my church are over.
It’s time to lay aside every weight that is hindering and slowing you down.
It’s time to train, and train hard.
It’s time to arise from your slumber.
It’s time to come out of hiding.
It’s time. Do not delay. Fix your eyes upon me, and do not be moved. Set your face like flint. Behold, your King, the King of Glory, the Light of the World, the Lamb of God. It’s time for your light to shine and for love to be poured out.
It’s time to walk in power and might, to walk in Victory with your beloved your King. Do not delay.
It’s time to focus. Do not be distracted by the world with all of its distractions and lists. Lives are at stake,. Remember who you are and why you are here. It’s not to fit in. It’s to stand out!
Kings will come to the light of my glory, shining through you.
It’s time! It’s time! It’s time! The hour is late. The day is near. You must be ready. You must be equipped and fully trained for the battle ahead. It’s time to strap on your boots, suit up, get your armor on and be hidden no longer. The true Sons & Daughters of the Kingdom will arise. It’s time to arise and shine!
