Contribute to God’s Kingdom

October 18, 2015 | Matthew 20:25-28 | discipleship, generosity, three commitments

In the book of Matthew, the mother of James and John asked Jesus for seats of authority for her sons on either side of Jesus. Jesus told her and all the disciples that following Him was not a call to be great in the way the world sees things. He said that the greatness they were called to was called servanthood. He told them to follow His example of service by being willing to contribute all that they had in serving God. Jesus gives us the same charge to be servants and contribute to His Kingdom.

How do we get our focus back and sustain it? One way is by becoming an active contributor to God’s Kingdom. We follow King Jesus and pour out our lives like Him. Jesus was a giver. He was committed to making a complete contribution of all that he had and all that he was. We can make becoming like Him our “One Thing.”
