To the Cross, part 5: Reordered

In the midst of Jesus telling His followers for the third time that He would be killed and raised, with even more details, they can’t seem to focus on what is at hand, and are still, STILL talking about who would be the greatest. This time, two of them ask Jesus to do whatever they ask. Maybe they thought if He said, “OK” He would be bound to give them what they want. Instead Jesus reminds them AGAIN that being concerned about yourself will get you nowhere in the kingdom, and that among those who would follow Jesus, the ordering begins with the slave of everyone. Main Text: Mark 10:35-45.

From Series: " Lent: To the Cross "

Lent is the season of preparation for Christ’s death on the cross for our sins and for the sins of the world. During Lent we follow Jesus as He makes His way back to Jerusalem, the Holy city, the center of the delivered promises of the covenant, the Land, and God’s presence with His people in His Temple. During Lent we see Jesus making things right, setting things in order, from healings to clearing out the Temple courtyard, God’s Kingdom comes dramatically in and through Jesus Christ. This is where God’s people reject His only Son, and where Jesus does His proper work of salvation, dieing for all sin. Lent ends with the wages of sin, death, but the death that pays for all sin for all time. But this is not the end, Easter is just 3 days away.
