This message observes an encounter Jesus had involving children, but it comes at a place in the gospels least expected. Children teach grown-ups much and Jesus understood this. At the close of the message, communion will be observed. You are invited to participate in remembering Jesus’ sacrifice!
To think of others more highly than oneself goes against human nature and against societal norms. Yet Scripture instructs believers to live in such a way. Matthew 20:20-28 is an account of Jesus’ interaction with a mother and two boys desiring greatness. Jesus addresses greatness head on by declaring greatness to be linked to servant-hood.
