Like a Child

At supper this evening there was an aquarium.  While we were waiting for our food to come my granddaughter and I went to look at the fish.  I am not sure that she had ever seen an aquarium that size before.  But she was fascinated.  We talked about the fish; where they were going, what they were doing, that they were swimming, what different colors they were, and why they were hiding.  She was drinking it all in and would have stayed there much longer than we had time to spend.  She observed all like it was brand new and it was fascinating to her.
We are to view the Lord and His Word with the fascination of a child seeing an aquarium for the first time...
In Matthew 18:3 Christ tells us we have to be like children to be in His kingdom.  Thinking through that one of the ways that we can be like children is to drink in all of the wonder that is Christ like it is continually new and fresh.  One of the primary ways, of course, that we see our Lord is through His Word.  Dr. Hendricks continually exhorted us that we had to view the Bible with fresh eyes.  To see everything as new like the first time we saw an aquarium up close.
