GigAlive: Concert of Inspirational and Spiritual Songs with a dash of Pop Music â€œAnd they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.â€? (Mark 10:13-16)
The image of Jesus Christ welcoming the children leads us, parents and adults, to understand the importance of children in our lives and to God. The special relationship of Jesus with the children is because of their innocence and their unquestioning faith. And it is that same kind of relationship that God wants us, parents and adults, to develop with God, for truly we are His children and He is our Father. With music we shall celebrate this special relationship with our Father, and with more meaning through the songs of our children. They shall render inspirational and spiritual songs with a dash of pop music in praise of God.
