Sermon Text: Mark 9:2-50

Reflection Questions:

  1. You want life, and happiness, and peace yes?  How are you planning on getting it?
  2. Does it bother you (or bewilder you) that Jesus talks about suffering and dying so much?
  3. How are you currently preoccupied with:  (1) your performance? (2) your productivity? (3) your personal prestige?
  4. How will you – specifically – crucify your quest for rank, and instead endeavor to receive the weak?
