I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. Matthew 16:18

 

When Jesus said that he was going to build his church, he knew that there was demo work that needed to be done on the people who call themselves his followers.

 

Three walls that have to come down…

 

Wall of Apathy

 

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. Mark 10:13

 

Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10:38

 

Wall of Privilege

 

Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” Mark 10:23

 

Wall of Position

 

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

 

One Two walls have to go up…

 

Wall of Humility

Wall of Faith

 

When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10:47

 

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:3-4
