THE GREATEST IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Praying at Gethsemane ,Jerusalem.

In this world people look for greatness at all cost.The way worldly standards define greatness is not the way the Kingdom of God defines it.When the disciples of Jesus came to him having the big question,who is the greatest in the Kingdom of God?Jesus Christ,the greatest teacher who has ever lived had this to say;

Jesus called a small child and brought him forward.Them He said to them;

Unless you are converted to become like a small child,you will never enter the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 18:1-11 “At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever shall receive one such little child in my name receives me. But whoever shall offend one of these little ones who believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offenses! for it must needs be that offenses come; but woe to that man by whom the offense comes! Therefore if your hand or your foot offend you, cut them off, and cast them from you: it is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if your eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.”

If you want to be great inthe Kingdom of God then;

learn to serve.

Become a child.

Learn to go before God in prayer

Humble yourself.
