Matthew 5:19 (ESV)  19Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 

I was a little tricky there because if you look close I inserted a very small printed “if “ but the if is actually big – here it is:

IF you do the commandments and teach others to do likewise – you are called great in God’s kingdom.

This is impossible for you to do, but it is easy for God to do it through you as you trust him and receive his grace and seek first his kingdom – simply put: Offer yourself to God as a living sacrifice and say Lord help me to be who you want me to be and do what you want me to do in the name of Jesus and by the presence of Christ in me. Amen. 

Then it works, No “Ifs” about it!
