Jesus Said What?!?1 Become a Servant

Mark records Jesus preparing his disciples for his departure. There must have been a sense for the disciples that Jesus was about to usher in the Kingdom of God and for the disciples it meant power and position. For Jesus the Reign of God meant becoming a servant with a child-like faith. Jesus said what?! What does the reign of God mean for our lives?

Mark 9:33-37

33 And they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” 34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” 36 And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” (ESV)
