MATTHEW 5:19_he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven…
The importance of the word least continues, but changes from a description of the Law to a description of a person.
When you take into consideration all the laws, the least one is indeed – least! Yet Jesus makes it important enough that to break the least law and teach others to follow your lead, causes you to be least in the kingdom of heaven.
Think of this in New Testament terms to see a better view: How heartbreaking it would be if you were part of what encompasses the Bride of Christ, and called least by the Groom. You don’t want the word least to refer in any kind of way to your relationship with Jesus!
Who could keep from breaking even a small law out of so many? No one.
There’s hope! Don’t give up yet!
Lord Jesus, Thank You for giving me hope. Thank You that if I follow You, I have no need to ever give up. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ is my hope—I won’t give up!
