Jesus is the King of an upside-down Kingdom.
When I am weak, I am strong.
The end of the line is the first in line.
When self dies, I live.
Surrender equals victory.
The poor in spirit are rich.
To be filled, we empty ourselves.
Those who give gain a reward.
Childlike faith defines a mature Jesus follower.
The world has the opposite standard. Worldly aspirations are as follows:
You have the strength to accomplish anything.
You must fight your way to the front of the line.
You don’t need anyone but yourself.
Surrender is not an option.
The poor in spirit are weak.
Happiness is acquiring material things, power and recognition.
You don’t trust anyone.
With Jesus, there is peace and rest. He supplies our needs and secures our future.
In the world, you are on your own.
