Rank in the Kingdom!

Matthew 18:1-6

Matthew 18:1-6 AMP

1 – At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

2 – He called a little child and set him before them,
3 – and said, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you repent [that is, change your inner self–your old way of thinking, live changed lives] and become like children [trusting, humble, and forgiving], you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

4 – Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 – Whoever receives and welcomes one child like this in My name receives Me;

6 – but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble and sin [by leading him away from My teaching], it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone [as large as one turned by a donkey] hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
