The Way of Smallness

Text: Mark 9:33-50
Rev. John Downs

The way of the world and, if we’re honest, the way of our own sinful hearts is to want to make a name for ourselves. However, in the counter-cultural economy of the kingdom of God, greatness shows up in small things. In the same way that our eternal savior Jesus took the path of becoming small for our sake to purchase our redemption, we have received the high calling as his disciples to value what may appear to be small in the eyes of the world, but is of great significance in his kingdom.
