    Barnes' Notes on Mark 10:15

    Whosoever shall not receive - Whosoever shall not manifest the spirit of a little child.

    The kingdom, of God - The gospel. The new dispensation by the Messiah, "or the reign of God through a Mediator." See the notes at Matthew 3:2.

    As a little child - With the temper and spirit of a child - teachable, mild, humble, and free from prejudice and obstinacy.

    Shall not enter therein - Shall not be a Christian; shall not be a "real" member of the family of Christ on earth. though he may be a "professor," and shall never enter heaven.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 10:15

    10:15 Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child - As totally disclaiming all worthiness and fitness, as if he were but a week old.
