Lessons in Humility

February 21, 2021

Bible Text: Mark 9:30-41 |


This morning we continue our journey with Jesus as recorded in Mark’s gospel. Jesus has transitioned from teaching crowds to private sessions with His disciples, preparing them for the days that He will not be with them physically. He gives them lessons about what is needed for disciples of His then and now. The first lesson had to do with faith. From a lesson on faith, he moves on to a lesson on humility. Humility is a tricky thing, because just when you think you have achieved it, you lose it. But it is a vital trait of a disciple of Christ. It is not a coincidence that Jesus gives this lesson with the reality of His own death and suffering as a backdrop.
