Luke 22:24 (KJV)  And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

Joel and his friend Peter started a prayer group in their community. The meetings enjoyed God’s favor and attendance grew so quickly because healings, deliverances, and miracles graced it. Some years down the line, it became obvious that a structure had to be put in place in order to manage the work effectively. It was at that point that rancor broke out between the two friends. ‘‘The original vision was given to me, so I should be the leader'' Joel said. ‘‘Oh, yes I know, but I have done most of the work, the very first meeting was in my apartment and I am the one to whom God has given the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit that drew the people’' responded Peter. The contention continued until they could no longer continue together and parted ways.

According to Jesus, who is the greatest in the kingdom of God?

Luke 22:25-26 (KJV)  And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

Mark 9:35 (KJV)  And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

It is obvious from the above passage that greatness in the kingdom of God is measured by service. So, if you want to be the greatest, you should strive to serve the best. This service, however, must be from a humble heart and not because a position is desired.

Matthew 18:4 (KJV)  Whosoever, therefore, shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Go into today knowing that you will enjoy more of God’s blessings when you serve him because you love him and not just because you want an earthly position.

Prayer: Lord, please give me a humble heart so I can serve you acceptably.
