Pastor Joshua talks about the pursuit of greatness in the Kingdom of God.

SERMON NOTES:

True Greatness:

Matthew 23:11-12 New Living Translation (NLT)
11 The greatest among you must be a servant. 12 But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Principle: True greatness is the pursuit of service.

Matthew 20:28 New International Version (NIV)
28 …the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

John 13:1-5, 12-15 New Living Translation (NLT)
13 Before the Passover celebration, Jesus knew that his hour had come to leave this world and return to his Father. He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth, and now he loved them to the very end. 2 It was time for supper, and the devil had already prompted Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had given him authority over everything and that he had come from God and would return to God. 4 So he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, 5 and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.

12 After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? 13 You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. 14 And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. 15 I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.

Principle: The Kingdom Culture is Servanthood

Pride blocks Greatness:

Principle: Pride BLOCKS Greatness

Matthew 20:25-28 New Living Translation (NLT)
25 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 26 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Principle: Serve the Lord and Serve each other!

Serving Each Other:

Principle: Servanthood shouldn’t be foreign, it should be first nature.
