Matthew 20:17 - 20:23
Steve Gregg discusses Matthew 20:17-23, where Jesus tells his disciples that whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Jesus refused the request of the mother of James and John to be seated at his right and left hands as it was not his decision to make. Jesus also reminded his followers that positions of honor are not important in his kingdom but rather the willingness to take up one's cross and follow him. Gregg emphasizes that disciples should not be concerned about who is going to be in positions of authority, but rather should focus on serving others like Jesus.
