A Congregation of Conservative Evangelical Christians

SERMON: August 2, 2015 “Who is the greatest?? Are you kidding?!”

With VBS still so fresh in our minds and hearts, the Word today from the Book of Mark (Mark 9:33-37) should remind us one more time not only are we to have a servant heart and actions to match, but the profoundness of a child-like faith and welcoming and introducing the children to His kingdom.  The disciples had been arguing who was the greatest and it wasn’t the first time they had done so.  But it is like Jesus is saying to them “you guys are dirt soon anyway, worry about the next generation to come!”  We can be so concerned about ourselves instead of listening to God and finding out what He wants us to do.  The only one who is greatest among us is Jesus!
