Gossip: through the jungle

Friday, November 29, 2019
    [Jesus:] “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
    —Luke 18:17 (NIV)
    Many today long to see Christ, but the jungle of theology hides Him and cuts them off from the sacred place, and few have daring or the hard-breathing patience to hack their slow way through. But if the matted undergrowth were down, or a path cleared through it, some might not see Him even then, but to how many He would grow quite clear and plain, and actual and there! And today, as always, it is the child heart that remembers the lost way to Christ.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), From the Edge of the Crowd, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1924, p. 222 (see the book)
    See also Luke 18:16-17; Matt. 18:1-5; Mark 10:13-15; 12:38-40; 2 Cor. 11:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, raise up people to clear the way, that the world might see You.
