The Way Up is Down
We all love the idea of being thought of as a servant, but it’s a whole different story to be treated like one. Jesus once again models the true nature of servanthood and generosity in a thought-provoking expression of love and humility, showing us that the way up is down. Come and hear Pastors Jeremy and Lisa kick off our new sermon series, “Last Words,” based on John 13-17.
Studies show that people say an average of 7-15 thousand words a day. Most of those words will be quickly forgotten, but when someone nears the end of their life, we tend to pay closer attention. We often get a deeper glimpse into what is most important to them and the things they want us to remember. In the Gospel of John 13-17, we read the last words that Jesus gave to His disciples before His crucifixion. As apprentices of Jesus, we are to pay close attention to what is most prominent on Jesus’ heart as His time on earth nears its culmination.
