As a Little Child

Our Lord told us that the way of entering the kingdom is by receiving. Whosever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein (Luke 18:17). We do not enter into the kingdom of God by working out some deep problem and arriving at its solution, not by fetching something out of ourselves but only by receiving a secret something into us. We come into the kingdom by the kingdom’s coming into us: it receives us by our receiving it.

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon
