This week on Reaching Your World.

Series: Luis Palau | Children

Jesus said “Let the little children come to me.”  On “Reaching Your World with Luis Palau” this week, Luis shares the passion he has to bring children to Christ.

Keep is Simple Thursday, November 23, 2017

When I was about 18 years of age, in the country I was born in - Argentina, South America - we organized a five-day club. To that five-day club we brought, in our case, boys and girls. I had charge of ten boys. And the first two people that I ever led to receive Jesus Christ into their heart as Savior were two boys of those ten that I had in that class.

One of the teachers from Child Evangelism Fellowship said to me these words: "If a 12-year-old boy understands the Gospel, then the Queen of England can also understand the Gospel.” And you know, I’ve taken that to heart all these many, many decades that I’ve been proclaiming the Good News of Jesus. It’s this, that I’ve been able to keep it simple so that the boys and girls in the audience will understand the love of Jesus, why He died on the cross, why He rose from the dead, how He forgives our sins, and how He takes us to heaven when we die or when He comes back in the clouds to take the Church to be with Himself.

Yes, simplicity. The basic Gospel of John chapter 3 and verse 16. Give that to the boys and girls.  Believe me, they understand it, they embrace it, they love Jesus and they will walk with Him for years and years to come. So, let the little children come.

Not Willing that Any should Perish Wednesday, November 22, 2017

You know, one of the reasons the Gospel is called Good News is because it says over and over in the New Testament that God is not willing that anyone should perish, that all would come to know Christ as Savior. God is not willing that anyone should perish but that all should come to the knowledge of the truth. That’s in First Timothy chapter 2. God is not willing that any should perish, but that they should all come to repentance. And speaking about little children, in Matthew chapter 18, the Lord Jesus Christ said these beautiful words: He said, "In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost."

Of course not!  The Lord made the little ones - every child, every boy and every girl.  And the Lord loves us with an everlasting love, and He wants all of us to come to know Him, all of us to have eternal life. Not one should perish. And the little children can understand. 

One of the reasons I really believe in leading them to Christ is that some of the greatest servants I’ve met in my many years of traveling the world were converted to Christ when they were boys and girls. The sooner they come to know the Savior, the better for them, and the more joyful for other people as they live out their life serving Jesus Christ. Win the little children to Jesus - today.

Let the Children Come Tuesday, November 21, 2017

These days I’m talking about reaching little children with the Good News and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. Yesterday, if you were listening to me, I talked about my six brothers and sisters, my wife and I, and three of our four boys came to Christ as children - young children. Secondly, I actually believe that we are supposed to reach the children in our community, in our families, and wherever God takes us. Because the Lord Himself said the famous words in Matthew 19, "Let the little children come to me." Little children, when they hear about Jesus, want to come to Him, because they are loved and they love to be loved. And they sense, because God is at work in them too, that Jesus is the Savior of the world.

"Let the little children come to ME," said the Lord Jesus. Not necessarily to church, though that’s very good, and not only to a group of Christian friends, but to Jesus Christ.  Secondly, don’t hinder them.  In other words, don’t stand in the way, don’t hold back. Children understand spiritual things often better than adults. Yes, children are open and ready to receive the Lord Jesus into their life and into their heart. And they love to know that when they die they are going to heaven, and that’s exactly what Jesus offers the children of the world.

Reach the Children Monday, November 20, 2017

The other day I read a very interesting remark by George Barna Market Research Firm: "Whatever a child believes by age 13 is, in most cases, what he will die believing." That’s what he said.  And you know, it got my attention. I’ll tell you why.  Because I believe that reaching out to children is one of the most wonderful jobs that any person could ever undertake. 

I came to Jesus Christ when I was 12 years old. My wife came when she was age 8. My five sisters and my little brother - they all came as children, and trusted Jesus Christ. Of our four sons, three of the four came to Christ when they were only children. 

You know, the Lord Jesus Christ had a special affection for children. In Matthew chapter 19 and verse 14 He said, "’Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ And when He had placed His hands on them He went out from there." Now, the Lord Jesus Christ had a special place in His heart for children, and you and I should have it too.

Let’s reach out to all the children in our community, beginning with your family, your neighbors, your relatives and all the people you know. Let the little children come to Christ.
