Dear reader, do you want to be outstanding in the Kingdom of Heaven? In this article I share with you seven things to make you great in God’s Kingdom.
Seek God with all your heart.
If you seek Heavenly Father with all your heart, he will make you great in his Kingdom. Seek God through his written word, prayer, church attendance, fasting, conferences and promoting the Kingdom of Heaven.
Bring the light of Jesus Christ to others.
Listen to what the written word of God in the Bible says about this:
Those who are [spiritually] wise will shine brightly
like the brightness of the expanse of heaven,
and those who lead many to righteousness,
[will shine] like the stars forever and ever.
Stay away from sin.
Listen to what the Bible says:
I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven
over one sinner who repents
than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
Don’t promote yourself.
If you promote yourself, then you leave no room for God to promote you. Hear what Jesus Christ said about a person who promotes himself:
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.
Do what is in Heavenly Father’s heart.
God always wants to do certain things on earth but he has no one to help him. This is the reason Heavenly Father is always happy when a person on earth does what is on God’s heart. King Jehu did everything that was in God’s heart and this pleased Heavenly Father.
Listen to what the Lord said about King Jehu:
Because you have done well in accomplishing what is right in my eyes
and have done to the house of Ahab all I had in mind to do,
your descendants will sit on the throne of Israel to the fourth generation.
Think about Heaven always.
If you want to be great in the Kingdom of God, then you must think about heaven always. Heaven is where Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit reside, and it is where you will spend eternity.
During his ministry on earth, Jesus Christ never ended a sermon without talking about heaven. Therefore, a day should not pass without your thinking about heaven.
Live a life of sacrifice.
Jesus Christ sacrificed everything for the sake of others. For this reason Heavenly Father made his name the greatest in the kingdom.
Sacrifice yourself through your commitment to God’s call on your life, church offerings, prayer, helping others, and expanding God’s Kingdom on earth.
