In our text we see a mother’s request for her sons and what a request it was. We see momma Zebedee looking out for the best interests and spiritual life of her boys. It seems like Mrs. Zebedee was being a little selfish and overprotective for her sons. However, I believe she was just trying to be certain that when the Lord established His kingdom, her boys would have positions of responsibility and authority- she just wanted the very best for her sons.
There are events surrounding the ascension of Jesus that urge us to realize God's love for us and to see things from His point of view. In fact, the ascension of Jesus forever changed things. While the above statements are reality, if someone is unaware of the changes, then the truths are of no value to the person. Unfortunately the lives of many people seeking to follow Jesus seem to reflect an unawareness of what was changed by the ascension of Jesus. Indeed, due to His ascension things will never be the same. Will the same be said of your life?
It comes as a bit of a surprise to some Christians that there lives should be anything more than growing their businesses, impressing the neighbors, and eating the goodies from God's hand.

On Sunday we will take a closer look at what the Kingdom of God is all about as we look study the teachings of Jesus. Be warned, the Kingdom of God is an extremely difficult reality to live out and experience. Even Peter and the other disciples found it rather confusing.

Lord teach us the good news that that tomb is empty. Do we live out the good news of the kingdom?
He is the central figure of Christianity. He is the greatest teacher, the most gifted leader, and the wisest man who ever lived. Like a golden thread, one theme runs through the life of Jesus Christ. It’s the primary focus of his words, his actions and his relationships. It’s his passion. Do you know what it is? If you want to have a relationship with God, you have to know Jesus. If you want to know Jesus, you have to understand what’s important to him. Join us for Kingdom Come, as we dive into the Gospel of Mark to understand the significance of the Kingdom of God in our lives here and now.
