Passage(s):

Mark 9:30-41

Sermon by Pastor Nick Krauss. Sermon Text: Mark 9:30-41

We are starting to see a pattern developing: Jesus predicts that as the Son of Man he will be handed over and killed but will rise again (8:31; 9:31; 10:33-34), the disciples do not understand what this means (8:32-33; 9:32; 10:38), and then they receive a lesson in discipleship (8:34; 9:35; 10:42-45). Jesus's first lesson is that every follower of Christ must live a life of self-denial (8:34). Jesus's second lesson shows what a life of self-denial looks like: a willingness to become the servant of all (9:35). This defines what true greatness looks like in God's eyes. This is the sort of greatness that we pursue in the Christian life. And no one will ever be greater than Jesus (Philippians 2:7)!
