Verily I say, unto you
A form of speech used when our Lord was about to asseverate a thing, and assert something of moment and importance, and which he would have attended to.
Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God;
the Gospel, and the mysteries of it:
as a little child;
laying aside all pride and prejudice, attending thereunto with humility and meekness:
he shall not enter therein;
he shall attain to no true spiritual knowledge of the Gospel; nor should he be admitted into a Gospel church state, and to the ordinances of it.
