Matthew 11:11. Earth vs. Heaven 5 Apr 2023
Mat 11:11 In truth I tell you,
of all the children born to women,
there has never been anyone greater than John the Baptist;
yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.
When the disciples tried to figure out who was the greatest among them, Jesus resisted that thought. And here, this Baptist, who never performed any documented miracle, is declared to be the 'greatest'.
Immediately however, the 'greater' is put into perspective: in the 'kingdom' that still would be the smallest.
Could this mean: when you are not yet in the kingdom of Heaven, you have no future? Or nothing is impossible with God?
Jesus, may your Kingdom come soon and for many.
What am I willing to sacrifice for the coming 'Kingdom of God?'
