Success: True Greatness -- Rev. Sandra Bottoms

Sunday, October 16, 2016 View Enclosure Enclosure View Comments Comments (0)
In this week's text, Jesus utilizes a teaching moment with the disciples to paint a picture of true greatness in terms of servanthood. Throughout his ministry, Jesus’ actions are grounded in love and self-giving. He taught, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” And yet, we tend to get our values and priorities mixed up, as we continue to frantically climb the ladder, and elbow our way to the front of the line. In the life and teachings of Jesus, all of our expectations of greatness are turned upside down. Are we ready to begin living into Jesus’ radically different model of greatness?
Scripture Lesson:  Matthew 20:20-28
