LESSON 7 The Kingdom Breaks Through Mark 10.13-52


How to be 1st in the Kingdom

Everyone knows the rules in our world. If you want to be important, you need to be rich and powerful. But Jesus’ kingdom is an upside-down kingdom. We come to Jesus like the little children and Bartimaeus, with nothing but our helplessness, fully dependent on Jesus. The rich man’s money and the jostling of James and John for power are not the way in Jesus’ kingdom. Humble service is the sign of greatness, and Jesus shows us this way by his sacrificial death.
