reversed kingdom

Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you.
Matthew 21:31b

Those who thought themselves righteous
smugly confronted Jesus
but they never saw the power of God
even when watching the glory of God
in what Jesus did
they thought their religion got them in

But Jesus challenged their thinking
with truth that He was saying
they could not enter the kingdom of God
without humbly repenting before the Son of God
they were such blind
leaders of the blind

Cheaters and whores entered heaven's streets
instead of self-righteous Pharisees
because they repented and believed
and the truth of Christ received
not on works they did to please Him
but only by trust and believing Him

No righteousness I do is right
to get the kingdom by my own might
only faith in the Son of God
through the gospel truth in the Word of God
will open heaven's door
for me to enter forever more
