Complete Dependence • Luke 18

Seeing his reaction, Jesus said, 
"Do you have any idea 
how difficult it is for people 
who have it all to enter God's kingdom? 
I'd say it's easier to thread a camel 
through a needle's eye 
than get a rich person 
into God's kingdom."

"Then who has any chance at all?" 
the others asked.

"No chance at all," Jesus said, 
"if you think you can pull it off by yourself. 
Every chance in the world 
if you trust God to do it."
Luke 18:24-27

"Mark this: Unless you accept 
God's kingdom in the 
simplicity of a child, 
you'll never get in." 
Luke 18:17

Simple faith.

Trusting completely in You.
That is all You require.
That is all You desire.

Complete reliance on You,
like an infant in her mother's arms.

Only You can
supply all that I need.

Only through You
can I really live.
