Persistence.


In Matthew 20:29-34, Jesus had finished teaching around Jericho and was headed to Jerusalem. As Jesus, the disciples and a great multitude were traveling, they passed two blind beggars. When the blind beggars heard it was Jesus, they cried out to Him. The crowd tried to get them to stop. But they cried the louder. Jesus heard them and had them brought to Him. Jesus asked what He do for them. The blind men responded to be healed. Jesus healed them because He had compassion and their faith and persistence. When we pray, God wants us to be persistent until He answers our prayer.

Servant to All.


in Matthew 20:24-28, the other ten disciples heard what James and John asked Jesus, they became angry with them. Jesus began to teach them about ministry. He told them that the gentiles lord their power over others. Jesus told the disciples that they wouldn’t do this to each other. He told them if you want to br great, then be the servant of all. Jesus told them that He didn’t come to be ministered to, but rather to serve. Jesus’s life is an example to us. He said that we would do greater things than He did. This also means that we will be greater servants than He was. Jesus said that He came to give His life a ransom for many. So will we give our lives as a servant for many. Then people will see who our Lord is and accept Jesus. Let us strive to be the servant of all.
