August 19, 2012 | Matthew 20:25-28 |
Pastor Gary Combs concludes the 4-part series “iCommit” with this message from Matthew 20. 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.
