Mark 10:35-45. “…Whoever wants to become great among you must serve the rest of you like a servant.” Mark 10:43 Some Pastors have found that if they only focus on the positive things found in God’s Word its easier to attract people and grow churches. The “Prosperity Gospel” has been a big hit in America, but many who have bought into that message have come to realize that the promised “rose garden” has thorns. Yes, Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) But Jesus also said, “Take up your cross and follow me.” Jesus also said, to find your life you must lose it. In the world everybody is out get ahead at any cost, be on top, have authority, gain power, status, success. Jesus comes along and says with His followers its not suppose to be that way. With you it’s different, with you its up side down.
