always searching for sermon illustrations

Last night I understood in my heart something that I had only ever relaly understood in my head.

Charis had wind, a lot of wind. She was having trouble releasing it and we were up in the early hours of the morning gently burping and farting and trying to ease the pain.
needless to say she was not happy. About an hour into it she looked at me. I don’t know if you’ve seen a very young baby cry, it’s a heartbreaking sight. She looked me right in the eye and cried out. But what gripped me where her eyes. She really connected with me as though she were totally aware of who I was and how reliant she was upon me. Her eyes spoke volumes as she stared at me and I swear that in that look she was imploring me to help her. In her small world, to the extent that she was capable, she expressed complete dependance upon me.

Mark 10:15 “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

Complete dependance.
