Das bedeutet vermutlich nicht, daß das Kind im Sterben liegt, sondern er/sie soll die Lehre Jesus kennenlernen, damit er "saved" ist - sprich:http://www.woundedheart.org/wounded/WH_woods0...
3. THE SAVIOR BRINGS SALVATION.
Nearing the end of their journey by now, with the day almost spent, at the last moment, they invited the stranger to join them in their home. They said, “Stay with us for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over.” (Luke 24:29).
All Jesus needed was an invitation. All Jesus needs from us is an invitation to come in. Jesus said, “Behold I stand at the door and knock . . .”(Rev. 3:20).
When we invite Him in, He brings the gift of salvation. Then, according to this hymn, “He takes the gloom and fills the heart with gladness.”
