Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus says there will be those in the kingdom which are the least and those which are greatest. We should all strive to be amongst those counted as great in the kingdom.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
We live at a time where false prophets and teachers seek to creep into the church. We therefore must continue to be vigilant to contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints.
Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
The local church is a place where God’s people can find rest from the world and be fed the word of God. This highlights the importance of having good pastors that serve the congregation with compassion.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
It is for the Lord’s pleasure that his creation would give him glory and honour. All creation makes the creator known, therefore mankind is without excuse to know him.
