theWord

Well brothers and sisters – it’s the last day of the year 2015. I know for me a day of reflection – what I’ve accomplished or where I fell short. For me this scripture rings true about what I have learned this year. Jesus is talking with His disciples and the mother of two of the disciples asked Jesus if they could sit at His right and left hand. Matthew 20: 24-27: ‘And when the ten heard it, they were greatly displeased with the two brothers. But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave-just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”‘ So what I have learned is that the measure of greatness is not position, power or prestige; it is service. Be careful if you are out and about tonight – remember the LORD in your prayers and thanksgivings. I’m looking forward to a brilliant 2016!!!
