The Sons’ Self-Centeredness; the Son’s Self-Denial

Jesus' response to James and John's request to sit in positions of prominence when Jesus returns in glory highlights three important aspects of Christian discipleship. First, Christ's disciples will join him in glory when he returns. Second, in the meantime we are called to a life of suffering and, third, a life of service for even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and give his life a ransom for many.

Read Mark 10:32-45
