July 13, 2014 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: The Gospel of Mark

Scripture: Mark 9:30–9:37

Kingdom Reversals
Mark 9:30-37
July 13, 2014

Introduction:

I. Suffering and defeat come first. Mark 9:30-32

II. God is still sovereign over history. Mark 9:31; Acts 2:23

III. Service is the path to greatness. Mark 9:33-35

IV. Pay attention to the lowly. Mark 9:36-37

Questions for Reflection:
• Why do you think it was difficult for the disciples to understand Jesus’ predictions of
suffering, death, and resurrection?
• Why is it comforting to know that God is in control of the events of history?
• Why is it so hard to be a servant? Why should we grow in becoming a “servant of all”?
Where or to whom might God be calling me to serve?
