Loving God, his people and our community

Mark 9:30-50 Serving not sinning

We are called to serve and not to sin.

This week, Donald Trump became the President of the United States. The oath he took talks about ‘leading’. In his leaving speech, Obama spoke about the joy of serving the American people.

Jesus led and served – he wanted his disciples to do the same. He frees us from sin and leads us into paths of righteousness.

The criteria Jesus applied was that ‘whoever is not against us is for us’. We are called┬áto serve ‘little’ people in little ways – children, immature christians – to be the servant of it all. To stop someone from serving is causing that person┬áto sin.
