Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday followed by projection from the message and a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week.
Matthew opened our time together by reading Colossians 3:16 as a call to worship.
One of the new members, Joel Aliff, gave a testimony about coming to KingsWay and Josh prayed for all the new members and their families.
Chris Deloglos preached the next message in our current series, Son of God: The Gospel According to Mark. The message was titled “Greatness through servanthood” from Mark 10:32-45. The message can be listened to again on our Audio Resources page.
After the message, Gene led us in communion and Matthew closed with a benediction.
Projection from the message:
Greatness Through Servanthood
1.The Mission of Jesus was servanthood.
2.The Mission of His disciples is servanthood.
3.Greatness comes by embracing His mission.
“…who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” – Philippians 2:6-11
By what standard does God measure greatness? What role does servanthood play in the Kingdom of God? How did Jesus teach and live this principle?
In this passage of Mark, it says that Jesus was walking ahead of His disciples on the way to Jerusalem. What is the significance of this?
Jesus said that following Him could be difficult and lead to persecution or even death, but He also said there would be a great reward for such discipleship. What is this reward?
Chris said that before you can embrace any mission, you must be embraced by The Mission itself. What does this mean? Why is the starting point of servanthood always the realization of what Jesus has already done for us on the cross?
