Becoming A Little One
Passage: Mark 10:13-31
Memory Verse for the Week: Mark 10:28-31 (ESV)
Peter began to say to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you.” Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.
Intro: How do you think about allegiance?
JESUS VS. THE STATUS QUO
Who is Jesus with and why?
DISTORTED & DISHEARTENED
What competes for our attention and affection?
THE BEAUTY OF BEING LOW
How does the Gospel change our perspective on humility?
YOU CAN PRAY WITH US …
1. Praise the LORD for His inherent humility and generosity. Worship Him, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for giving to us freely of His riches and welcoming us into His family and home.
2. How have you lived as if this world counts for everything and as if God counts for little or nothing? Confess your foolishness and rebellion to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and to change your perspective.
3. Give thanks to Jesus for becoming poor in order that those who believe in Him would be made rich. And thank Him that those who have made themselves rich in rebellion against Him will be stripped of every last penny.
4. Who do you know that lives intoxicated with the riches of this world and numb to God? Pray for them, asking the Lord to open their eyes and love them just as He loved the rich young ruler.
5. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and insight into how Jesus views the things of this world. Pray for such joy in the Lord – that He offers Himself to us and that He claims us as belonging to Him.
