Instead of God’s Kingdom (2)

Status/Position

Humans were created by God to function in a hierarchy. The problem lies where people focus on achieving position and forget that the hierarchy places God at the top. Being a follower of Christ involves leading by serving. This concept is difficult to grasp by worldly standards so Jesus became our example. Although He held the power of God as we do in the Holy Spirit, He exhibited gentleness and kindness by serving those around Him. Confidence in His power created humility that only showed His power to those who understand. (Mark 10:31) But many who are first will be last, and the last first. (Mark 10:43b-44) But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all
