    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

We get to choose. Once when Jesus was preaching from a boat, He told a parable about a man that sowed wheat in H...

An Inverted Kingdom

  • But he who is greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matthew 23:11 WEB

    God is never impressed with the things that we have accomplished for it is by His grace and mercy that we are breathing at all. God is not impressed with how many people attend your church, for He placed them there. God is not impressed with your giving, for all that you have came from Him. He entrusted you with it to see what you would do, so don't be too impressed with yourself.

    The way to greatness in God's eyes is by humbling yourself. Jesus said, 'The least of you will be the greatest' (Luke 9:48). C.S. Lewis said it well: 'Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less.' The Bible is full of promises that are reserved for the humble. For those that put others needs, before their own. Here are a few of them:

    Luke 14:11'For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.'

    1 Peter 5:1 'God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time'

    James 4:10 'Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you.'

    Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, when they would not wash His. Though He was the greatest, He acted as the lowest, and He put their needs above His own. We each have our assigned part and the kingdom of God works upside down from the kingdom of man. It is an inverted kingdom. You may impress God with your humility, obedience, and love, but not with your accomplishments, position, or status.

    When you let it go, He will give you back better. When you humble yourself and submit your life to God, He will raise you up. When you give to Him, He will multiply it and give it back. When you take care of others, He will take care of you. It is a circle of life.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for waking me up today. Help me see the pride in my life, and give me the grace to humble myself before You. Lead me by Your Spirit and help me make the right decisions, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Great message, sadly not preached very often. God is certainly not interested in numbers, He placed some of them and satan placed some. We need to focus on doing who God calls us to do and not on how the world values what we are doing. Noah caught a lot of flack from his neighbors for building an ark, but they drowned.
