SERVANTHOOD OUTLINE • VV. 35-40 A SELFISH PETITION • VV. 41-44 A SOMBER PROCLAMATION • V. 45 A SPIRITUAL PATTERN
SERVANTHOOD I. A SELFISH PETITION
SERVANTHOOD The Request (vv. 35-37) • They were literally asking for three things. They wanted Preeminence. They wanted the glory and honor that came from being elevated to a throne. • They wanted Proximity. They wanted to be close to Jesus in the Kingdom. • They also wanted Power. These men wanted to have positions of great authority in the coming kingdom.
SERVANTHOOD What made them think that they could ask for such things?
SERVANTHOOD PADRINO Matthew 20:21 "Anoang gusto mo?" tanongni Jesus. Sumagotsiya, "Kapagnaghaharinapo kayo, paupuinninyosainyongtabiangdalawakonganak, isasakanan at isasakaliwa."
SERVANTHOOD PROMISE Matthew 19:28 Sinabisakanilani Jesus, "Tandaanninyo: kapagnaghaharinaangAnakng Tao sakanyangtronongkaluwalhatiansabagongdaigdig, kayongsumunodsa akin ay uupo din salabindalawangtronoupangmamunosalabindalawangliping Israel.
SERVANTHOOD • These men never did grasp the idea that their leader, the Lord Jesus Christ, was headed to a cross. • All they could see was the crown. They wanted the crown without the cross. • They wanted the glory without the pain. They wanted the reward without having to pay the price.
SERVANTHOOD • The problem with the disciples is the same problem people have today. • Most people are not concerned with the glory of God. • All they care about is their own power, position and prestige. • The problem with the disciples, and the problem with many of us, is that we are filled with pride. • Pride always leads to defeat.
SERVANTHOOD • The Response (vv. 38-39a) • When Jesus uses the word “cup” He is talking about “a life experience”. • When He uses the word “baptism” He is referring to being “submerged or immersed” in that experience. • Jesus is saying, “I am about to be immersed in an experience that you cannot imagine. Are you able to go through it too?”
SERVANTHOOD ANO KAYO HILO? MAGAGAWA BA NINYO ANG GAGAWIN KO? BOSS… WALANG PROBLEMA! YAKANG YAKA! • They tell Him that they can. • But these men do not understand what awaits Jesus. • Their response reveals a complete lack of understanding concerning what Jesus is about to suffer and of the load He was sent to carry.
SERVANTHOOD • Jesus is on His way to Calvary where He will bear the sins of His people on a Roman cross. • Jesus is about to experience the undiluted wrath of Almighty God against sin and sinners. • Jesus is about to die at the hands of the Heavenly Father.
SERVANTHOOD • The Revelation(vv. 39b-40) Angkopangakingiinuman ay iinumannganinyo, at babautismuhannga kayo sabautismongtatanggapinko. Ngunithindiakoangmagpapasya kung sinoangmauuposaakingkanan at saakingkaliwa. Angmgakarangalangiyan ay parasamgapinaglaanan.
SERVANTHOOD • Jesus tells them that they will experience His anguish to a degree. • They will die for their faith. • All of them died a martyr’s death, except for John and he was exiled to Patmos and greatly persecuted for his faith. • These men would walk the same road that Jesus walked, but they could never endure what He was about to suffer.
SERVANTHOOD • Jesus tells them that positions in the kingdom would not be given out based on selfish ambition, but according to the will of sovereign God. • The same is true in life! • What a person receives in this world in terms of blessings, usefulness and ministry are all determined by the will of God.
SERVANTHOOD II. A SOMBER PROCLAMATION
SERVANTHOOD • The Exasperation (v. 41) HOY KAYONG MAG-UTOL… MAG-AYOS NGA KAYO BAKA UPAKAN NAMIN KAYO!
SERVANTHOOD • Let me just remind you that God cannot work in that kind of environment! • When there is a problem between the saints of God, it hinders the work of God in His church. • When there are hard hearts and hurt feelings among God’s people, there will be no power of God in the church house!
SERVANTHOOD • The Examination (v. 42) AlamninyonaangmgaitinuturingnapinunongmgaHentilangsiyangnamumunosakanila, at angmgadinadakilaangsiyangnasusunod.
SERVANTHOOD • Jesus doesn’t allow their anger to simmer. • He addresses the issue at hand and calls their attention to the Gentile world around them. • He lets them know that “high seat seeking” is the way of the world. • Those who rule in this world rise to the top by grabbing power and oppressing their opponents.
SERVANTHOOD • We see that mentality all around us in the world today. • This is an election year and every candidate is doing everything in his or her power to come out on top. • He wants the disciples, and us, to understand that God has a higher goal for His children.
SERVANTHOOD • The Expectation (vv. 43-44) Ngunithindiganyanangdapatumiralsainyo. Sa halip, angsinumansainyonanaismagingdakila ay dapatmaginglingkodninyo at angsinumangnaismagingpinuno ay dapatmagingalipinnglahat.
SERVANTHOOD • The Lord wants us to know that the path to the top leads through the bottom. • If you really want to reach the top, you must start out at the bottom. • If you really want to be a leader, you must first learn how to serve.
SERVANTHOOD • The idea is this: if we want to be recognized and respected, we must give up all ambition and selfishness. • We must live out our days serving others. • It means being willing to get none of the glory. • If we want to come out on top, we must first start by being a slave.
SERVANTHOOD • We need people in the church who could care less if they are ever recognized as long as God’s work is accomplished. • We need people who are willingly become slaves so that others are served. • We need people who will graciously step aside when the time is right so that others can serve. • That is what we need! Is that what we have?
SERVANTHOOD III. A SPIRITUAL PATTERN
SERVANTHOOD • The Prominence SapagkatangAnakng Tao ay naparitohindiupangpaglingkurankundiupangmaglingkod at upangmag-alayngkanyangbuhayparasaikatutubosngmarami
SERVANTHOOD • This verse reminds us of Who Jesus is. • He is the Son of God. • He is God in the flesh. • If anyone who ever walked on this earth should have been served it should have been Jesus.
SERVANTHOOD • He could have commanded legions of angels to do His every bidding. • Instead, He walked many dusty miles serving those around Him. • He could have come to this world as a King and been born in a palace with servants and great wealth. • Instead, He was born in a stable, in abject poverty. • He did not come to be served, He came to serve.
SERVANTHOOD • If our God is willing to serve sinful humanity, we should be willing to serve as well. • Some people think they are too good to serve others. • Jesus Christ never thought that! • He got down into the mud with fallen man so that He could lift him out and change his condition. • May God give us that same heart to serve!
SERVANTHOOD • The Passion • The Lord’s passion to serve was such that He willingly took the place of a slave. • The greatest example of that can be seen the night before He went to the cross.
SERVANTHOOD • He took the place of a slave and washed the dirty feet of men who would run away before dawn. • He washed the feet of Peter who would deny Him three times before dawn.
SERVANTHOOD • He even washed the feet of Judas Iscariot who would betray Him in to the hands of His enemies that very night.
SERVANTHOOD • Jesus performed the greatest service of all when He went to Calvary to die on the cross for sinners who hated Him and wanted nothing to do with Him. • Service was His passion. • Service was His life. • May that same passion grip our hearts! • May we freely take the place of slaves and serve others for the glory of God alone!
SERVANTHOOD • The Price • The cost of service for Jesus was extremely high. • It cost Him His very life. • Jesus willingly went to His death to save those who cared nothing for Him.
SERVANTHOOD • He suffered the shame, the pain, the humiliation, and the agony of the cross to serve lost sinners. • He experienced the undiluted wrath of Almighty God to serve us.
SERVANTHOOD • He took the place of a common criminal and was judged as rebel so that sinners could be saved. • He willingly entered into death so that others might enter into life.
