Mark 9:33-50

Sunday Morning Service,  May 12, 2013

Every genuine believer is a servant of Jesus Christ. We have been saved to serve. However, servants need to be instructed on the purpose, goals and methodology of service if our serving is to be effective for God’s glory. The disciples got caught up in their own desire for personal success. We must never forget that serving is all about Jesus Christ. Christ-likeness is the key so that our purpose is the same as Christ’s purpose and our goals must correspond to His goals. He even instructs us on the methodology. A good servant will learn from His mentor and magnify His life and ambitions to the glory of God.
