My Title: The Kingdom is NOT What We Would Suppose
My Verse: 43 - 44
43 "But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many."
The kingdom is not what we would suppose. For some reason we think heaven is going to be all about me me me. Everything here is broken and upside down. Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve. < Think about that. - We squabble and fight for what's ours in this life. We look for loop holes in God's laws to justify our own sin. We think we deserve the important roles in Jesus' kingdom. This life becomes a WHOLE lot clearer when we see it through Jesus' eyes.
Do YOU KNOW WHO Jesus IS? The blind man was the only one that could truly SEE Him. The more you have invested in this life the harder it will be to give it up to gain the eternal life. < Don't invest here.
