This is a sermon I preached at St Peter & St Paul Shepton Mallet on Mark 10:35-45.
James and John asked Jesus which of them would sit at his left and right in his kingdom. But Jesus told them to serve, not seek prestige. We are to be counter-cultural. To serve means that we need to think about others first, to be vulnerable, and to accept God’s ownership of us.
Listen to the sermon above.
