Kingdom Great | Part 2

May 21, 2023    Bill Borland

In Mark 10, Jesus addresses his disciples' desire for greatness and provides them with profound insights. He teaches that true greatness is not achieved through positions of power or authority, but rather through a servant-hearted attitude and a willingness to serve others. Jesus exemplifies this by emphasizing the importance of humility, as he states, "Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all." By shifting the disciples' understanding of greatness, Jesus challenges societal norms and encourages a radical transformation in their approach to leadership. He calls them to set aside self-centered ambitions and instead embrace a selfless love for others, thereby demonstrating the true nature of greatness in the Kingdom of God.
