At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:1-5 NIV
It is only in totally letting go, giving ourselves completely to Christ, that we can be great in the eyes of God. When we relinquish our desires and hopes to Him, and let Him be in charge of our lives, then we can be used as His vessel, working for the kingdom of God. A child depends upon their parent for nurturing and upbringing. Should we not do the same with the One who created us? As long as we are in charge, we block God from being able to use us for His kingdom. God will not force us to relinquish our all to Him. He doesn’t work that way. He waits for our willing submission, then He goes to work, in and through us.
How could one be considered great in heaven if they do not allow the Lord to use them as His vessel for the accomplishments of God’s kingdom? Are you willing to give what is required to be great in the kingdom of heaven? I pray that the answer is yes.
