  • The real issue here is not if pride exists in

    your heart; its where pride exists and how

    pride is being expressed in your life.

  • 19 And he took bread, and when he had

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them saying, This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, This cup that is poured outfor you is the new covenant in my blood.

  • 21 But behold, the hand of him who

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    betrays me is on the table.

  • 22 For the Son of Man goes as it has

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    been determined, but woe to that manby whom he is betrayed!

  • 23 And they began to question one

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    another, which of them it could be who was going to do this.

  • 24 A dispute also arose among them, as

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    to which of them was to be regarded as the greatest.

  • Jesus said to his disciples, Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of

    men. But they did not understand this saying. An argument arose among them

    as to which of them was the greatest.

  • But Jesus, knowing the reasoning of their hearts, took a child and put him by his side and

    least among you is the one who is great.~ The Gospel of Luke 9:43ff

  • We spend too much precious time and energy managing

    perception and creating carefully edited versions of

    ourselves to show to the world.

    ~ Bren Brown

  • Key Thought

    Although pride is easy to see in others,

    its almost impossible to see in ourselves.

  • At every stage of our Christian development and in every sphere of

    our Christian discipleship, pride is the greatest enemy and humility our

    greatest friend.

    ~ John Stott (1921-2011) Anglican Minister & Author

  • What is your standard of measuring greatness


  • 25 And he said to them, The kings of the

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    Gentiles exercise lordship over them, andthose in authority over them are calledbenefactors.

  • 26 But not so with you. Rather, let the

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leaders as one who serves.

  • Whoever would be great among you must be your

    servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For

    even the Son of Man came not to be served but to

    serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

    ~ Jesus of Nazareth in The Gospel of Mark 10:43-45

  • 27 For who is the greater, one who reclines

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am amongyou as one who serves.

  • Do you understand what I have done for you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your

    Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one anothers feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not

    greater than his master.~ Jesus in the Gospel of John 13:13-16

  • Humility is not thinking less of yourself,

    but thinking of yourself less.

    ~ CS Lewis

    The Gospel of Luke 22:24-30

    me in my trials, 29 and I assign to you, asmy Father assigned to me, a kingdom, 30that you may eat and drink at my table inmy kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

  • Why does Luke record this account in his historical

    biography of Jesus?

    Important Question

  • If you want to know how to define greatness, look no further

    than Jesus Christ.

  • Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant

    than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the

    interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,

  • ~ The Apostle Paul in Philippians 2:3-8

    who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be

    grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he

    humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

  • ?What do you think our city would look like if everyone took to heart what Jesus is teaching here?

  • NCC, may your life be marked by greatness

    as redefined by Jesus,the Great Servant of servants.
