Be a Pawn for the Lord

09-23-2018David Lins

I mess up. Often. Ask anyone who knows me well. As a result, I sometimes get discouraged in my efforts to be a disciple. I feel unworthy and unable. Yet, there are certain verses of the Bible that give me hope. In the ninth chapter of Mark, the disciples are arguing over who was the greatest.

I can almost hear them now, “I am so much more humble than you!” “You are crazy! No one has been, is, or ever will be as humble as I am!” It seems ridiculous on the surface until we do a good examination of conscience.
