We consider these remarkable words of Jesus, in which He points first of all to the greatness of the preaching of John the Baptist and then to the greatness of the effects it had on the people.

Contrary to much modern teaching, we see that the Kingdom of Heaven is something we must strive to enter, struggling with all our might.

We also consider the forces that stand against us as we would attempt to lay hold of this Kingdom, and how we may overcome them and enter into all the blessings that belong to its members.
