Come Near to God

Would you like to see into the future? Would you really like to know that a bad thing was going to happen if you couldn’t do anything to stop it?

Jesus knew that He would be betrayed, arrested, and killed, so He warned His disciples to prepare them for when it happened. He also told them that He would be raised back to life, but they didn’t understand what He was saying.

Instead of asking about it, they began to argue amongst themselves about who was the greatest. They missed the point. True greatness is not about “blowing your own trumpet”, it is about serving others by being useful to them in God’s name. Jesus is the perfect example for us to follow.
