"Who was the greatest" ~ Mark 9:30-37
33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest. ~ Mark 9
"Whose glory do you seek? There can be no share in God's glory without the cross.
When Jesus prophesied His own betrayal and crucifixion, it did not make any sense to His disciples because it did not fit their understanding of what the Messiah came to do. And they were afraid to ask further questions!
How often do we reject what we do not wish to see? We have heard the good news of God's word and we know the consequences of accepting it or rejecting it. But do we give it our full allegiance and mold our lives according to it?
Ask the Lord to fill you with His Holy Spirit and to inspire within you a reverence for His word and a readiness to obey it.
Jesus, Himself, is our model. He came not to be served, but to serve (Matthew 20:28). ... If we want to be filled with God's life and power, then we need to empty ourselves of everything which stands in the way – pride, self-seeking glory, vanity, etc.
God wants empty vessels so He can fill them with His own glory, power, and love (2 Corinthians 4:7).
Are you ready to humble yourself and to serve as Jesus did?"
"Lord Jesus, by your Cross you have redeemed the world and revealed your glory and triumph over sin and death. May I never fail to see your glory and victory in the Cross. Help me to conform my life to Your will and to follow in Your way of holiness." ~ dailyscripture.net
