See example of text below:
3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted (a spiritual change reflected in thought, word, and deed; being born again) and become as little children (a little child is a natural believer filled with trust and the desire to please), you will by no means (human schemes and plans will not work) enter the kingdom of heaven (the only way into the Kingdom is child-like faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Before one can be great in the Kingdom he must enter the Kingdom by faith in Jesus Christ).
4 Therefore (since this is true) whoever (the Kingdom is available to all) humbles himself (looks not to his own ability but rather to the ability of another, even Jesus) as (in the same manner) this little child (the little child lacks power and ability and thus finds himself looking to others for provision. It is not what I can do or what I can accomplish; it is what Christ accomplished for me on the cross) is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven (greatness in God’s Kingdom comes not from push, pull, and political maneuvering but from humble submission and service to the King of the Kingdom depending totally on His cross work for salvation and success in living the Christian life).
