Undivided Greatness

Bible Text: Matthew 20:20-28 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels The disciples finally had life by the tail – they would be great in Jesus’ Kingdom! Thrones, fame, power, glory! And Jesus didn’t then rebuke James and John for seeking honored positions because Jesus wated to draw them toward the true greatness of servanthood. Not because it’s good, not because it makes us feel good, but because when we serve for Christ’s sake, we glorify Him. Only The Greatest can make you great.

Bible Text: Matthew 2:1-12 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels The magi from the east got the invitation. It glittered and they accepted.

Accepting God’s invitation to know Jesus will not lead you to a simple and neat party. It will confuse your life, rattle what was normal, and lead you into obedience you couldn’t have imagined. But the invitation stands. How will you respond?
