God looks at success from a totally different perspective than the world views it. The world focuses on temporal things while God focuses on eternal things. So, what does genuine success look like to God and what makes it up? Last week we focused on faithfulness and now our attention turns to serving!
In today’s world, it seems as if everyone wants to have the upper hand of authority. Those who humbly serve others’ needs before their own are in the minority, but Jesus models just the opposite to those who follow Him. When Jesus encounters two blind beggars in need of help, He stops, listens, and serves their deepest needs and the temporal paradigm begins to shift.
So, come and join us this Sunday at 8:45 or 11:00 as we continue the sermon series WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED with a message entitled The Substance of Genuine Success: Serving (Matthew 20:20-21, 24-34). We look forward to seeing you at MCBC!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's VBS a huge success!
