Does Love Actually Work In The Real World? [Mark 10:32-45]

Is love enough to change the world? Explore how Jesus’ illogical kingdom can truly make a difference in the real world in this thought-provoking episode.

Main Ideas:
[01:18] We’ve created systems and institutions to give us a sense of security in an uncertain world.
[02:07] Our human systems always end up being ruined by humans
[02:45] The only way to change the world is through Jesus’ illogical kingdom
[05:13] Jesus’ death wasn’t an accident. It was his planned inauguration.
[07:09] We think the solution is just a different version of all the other failed solutions.
[08:59] A new and better solution requires something new and more demanding
[11:38] The Kingdom of God isn’t about having power over others, it’s about giving service to others.
[12:18] Jesus put our lives over his.
[13:01] Jesus’ service to the world transforms how we see the world.
[14:38] The completely ‘different’ of the Kingdom of God is the only thing that can fix our real world.
[18:28] In the Kingdom of God we serve because our King first served us.

[16:12] If you are ready to live for the Kingdom of God…
– Accept Jesus’ invitation to join his kingdom.
– Follow the way of the King
