The Greatest of All – Luke 7:28

Greatest-of-All-Small“I tell you, of all who have ever lived, none is greater than John. Yet even the least person in the Kingdom of God is greater than he is!” (Luke 7:28, NLT).

Jesus praised John the Baptist as one of the greatest people who have ever lived. Then, Jesus contrasted the eminence of John with that of people who are just “average” citizens of God’s Kingdom.

Jesus said that even the least important person in the God’s Kingdom is greater than John the Baptist.

In other words, the free and complete forgiveness of sins, the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, and having an intimate knowledge of God give His people, the citizens of His Kingdom, a status with God that is greater than even John the Baptist enjoyed.

If you are  a citizen of God’s Kingdom, you are the greatest of all!

“But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.”  (1 John 4:4, NLT).
