"Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 18:4

"So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few are chosen." - Matthew 20:16

Contrary to how greatness is perceived in our world, Christ's message about greatness is quite the opposite. Those who humble themselves will be exalted in God's kingdom and those who exalted themselves here on earth will be brought down. Many will not make it to the kingdom of heaven because they thought of themselves to be too good to receive Christ and the grace He offered. There is hope only  for a humble and repentant heart to enter into kingdom of God.
Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
 
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
