To Turn

“Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven.” With these words Jesus reminds us again this morning that if we want to be his disciples, we have to keep turning- that’s what conversion means- you keep turning around and learning to live as if God were truly in charge.

Still we know all that turning and turning can be exhausting. But it’s worth it, for then as little ones we will be totally dependent on him and even dependent on one another. And then the kingdom of God will happen in our midst.

Let us turn and go down to the very low place of our sinfulness, we will find the Lord there waiting to forgive and mercy us.
