Final Thoughts on Mark 9:35
. . . “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.” NKJV
The world is filled with people who aspire to be great, but the Lord calls us to have a servant’s heart. The church needs you, dear brothers and sisters in Jesus, to serve. True greatness comes only to those who put away human pride and arrogance.
Pride is a dread disease that gnaws on the Church of God. Arrogance is a cancer that wrecks family units and local churches without exception. . . . The less there is of I, the more there is of God’s Power. The more there is of I, the more I crowd out the Holy Spirit. David E. Buffaloe
