10/22/2018 — Matthew Chapter 18

Today’s & another recent reading provide examples of where the values of the Kingdom are so different from the values of the “world.”  Jesus taught that to “achieve” a goal we have to “be” just the opposite.

Matthew 16:   25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.

Matthew 18:  Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    Catching up and reading Matt. 16 – 18 together, I see that Jesus is talking about our meeting him and taking on his character by first dying to our old self and becoming a new creature and growing into the likeness of him. This is required in order to be a Kingdom dweller. Jesus fleshed out the example of Kingdom living for us.
