• The Preacher Says


A Little child shall Lead Them

by Keith Bellamy

This Sunday evening we had an old-fashioned revival.

When Duane Turner baptized his grandson, Carson Fasske, I was thinking of Isaiah 11:6, which points to the Messiah. That verse ends with “a little child shall lead them” (ESV).

Everyone gets excited about a baby’s birth. Look at the birth of Christ and notice the excitement. And everyone should get excited about someone being born again (John 3:3-5).

Because of Carson’s desire to be baptized, there were several in attendance, some who were not members of the Woodville church family. However, they were there. And they were excited! The singing was fantastic because of the excitement.

I was also thinking of how we need the heart of a young soul like Carson. Do you remember what Jesus said in Luke 18:16-17? “But Jesus called them to him, saying, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it’.” (ESV)

The children who comprise this church family are the life of this church.

People will come to Jesus Christ because of children.

Many years ago, someone started bringing a five-year-old to church. That five-year-old went back and influenced his whole family to start attending that church. That young child is now a grown man. He inherited a crippling disease his mother had that eventually took her life and the same disease took the life of his brother. But that man is now a preacher. Because of that young man’s desire to see his family saved, they all became Christians.

Could one, or all, of our young lead people to Christ? Think about it!
