The last will be first, and the first will be last …

“The last will be first, and the first will be last” (Matthew 20:16). This is the reversal of the world’s values. This is grace – not works. The way in which grace reaches us is through Christ’s death and resurrection  (Matthew 20:17-19). When we hear the Gospel – Jesus “came to serve and gave His life as a ransom for many people” (Matthew 20:28), our eyes are opened to see who Jesus really is and to understand what He has done for us, and we follow Him (Matthew 20:34).
