26 / Mark 10:35-45 / Read

  • What might have motivated James and John to ask Jesus their question in vv. 37? How do you react to their question?

  • How does Jesus contrast the way that the world views position and power with the way they are viewed in the kingdom of God? How is position and power linked with a sense of security?

  • Have you ever been treated differently because of your position? Have you ever treated someone differently because of your position?

  • How is security linked with identity? How does an identity in Christ free a person from striving to be better than others and instead be eager to serve them?
