Here are a few questions to challenge your faith jones. Answer them correctly, and your spiritual acumen will be obvious to all. Well, maybe not... I'm more interested in simply exploring these queries a little, and don't have "the right answers" in mind. Really. So what do you think:
- When Jesus talks about "faith like a child," what does he have in mind?
- Is "child-like faith" different from "normal faith?" (Assuming, in this case, that normal faith is the healthy, 100% supernatural stuff that was good enough for Moses, Elijah, David and everyone else who has been, will be, or are being saved by grace.)
- Or should we assume that faith like a child is, well, the one kind of faith that God is after?
- That is, either you have this kind of faith, which Christ said will inherit the kingdom of heaven, or you don't have faith at all?
I've been given an opportunity to preach at church this Sunday, and I'm leaning toward the topic of "Faith Like a Child"...so make your suggestions snappy, all right? ;)
