“Heavenly Citizenship”

Key Verse

“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14

Text — Matthew 19:13-15


To become a citizen of a country you must pass through the process of either registration, naturalization or birth. The same way, to become a citizen of heaven, you must pass through the process of salvation and holiness of life for without holiness no boy or girl shall see the Lord.

Little children are not exempted from seeing Jesus on the last day. Jesus Christ while on earth allowed children to come unto Him. The disciples tried to hinder the children from getting to the Saviour. Perhaps they thought that Jesus is too busy or have no time for “playful children.” However, Jesus corrected them, then He carried the children and blessed them. This tells us that heaven is for all, whether young or old. To get to heaven you must prepare by repenting and turning away from sin and continuing in constant fellowship with friends of Jesus while you patiently wait for the rapture.
