Matthew 18:1-4 (NET) At that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, had him stand among them, and said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn around and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven! Whoever then humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Olamide observed that as he became more like Christ in character, he became more spiritually powerful and could wield greater spiritual authority. It wasn't always like that. There was a time that he needed to pray and fast in order to cast out a small demon or walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, but as he grew spiritually, he observed that many times, before he fully voiced his requests, demands or desires, heaven would respond. Olamide observed that one of the significant markers of his spiritual maturity was that he became more humble and gentle– he became more like Christ in nature(see Matthew 11:29).

This wasn't always the case with Olamide. He could still remember when he first started serving the Lord, and how proud he used to be. He couldn't bear any criticism and was having "beef" with most of his brethren in the fellowship. But as he grew spiritually, he became more like a child in humility and was now more considerate of people. It appeared as though he became smaller in his own eyes, but in reality, he became greater in the kingdom that truly matters(see Matthew 18:4).

The church's objective is to train believers and turn them into disciples, servants, and friends of Christ. Sanctification is the process by which this happens. It is the process by which we become saints. Christ is the original prototype of sainthood. Two things stand out in the character and spirit of Christ, they are humility and gentleness, and they are like two sides of the same coin. A truly loving person will be humble and gentle to the one he loves. As Christ is formed in us, the love of God possesses us more and more, and we become more humble, less complicated, and truly gentle (kind, tender, and considerate).

Go into today remembering that your destiny in life(eternity) is that you would be great in the kingdom of God, and the path to this greatness is becoming more humble and gentle. As you become more like Christ, you will become more humble and gentle

Prayer: Ask the Lord to deliver you from every trace of the old Adamic nature and help you walk in your divine nature.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
