September 19, 2021 First United Methodist Church 1125 Wellborn Road, College Station, TX 77840 Rev. Eleanor Colvin, Pastor (979) 690-8415 Website:

Call to Worship One: Sing! Sing unto the Lord! All: Let’s make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Let’s worship God with gladness. One: We were made to worship! All: So, we come into God’s house with singing! One: We sing of your wisdom and grace. We sing of your power and might. All: We delight in serving You! One: From the rising of the sun, until the going down of the same… All: We declare your praise — in word and deed, in Spirit and Truth. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!

The Spoken Word “No Contest” Mark 9:30-37 Rev. Eleanor L. Colvin Sermon Notes Key Scriptures:   Mark 9:33-34 – They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest. Mark 9:35 – Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.” Mark 10:44 and Matthew 20:26-28 — Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your servant — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 9:37 – Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me, but the One who sent me. Romans 12:10 — Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. [ESV]

Key Questions: 1. Are you striving to “out do” other disciples in love? In service? In generosity? 2.Are you willing to be “in last place” for the sake of the Gospel? 3.What are you doing in Jesus’ name? Who are you welcoming/serving as evidence that you welcome/serve Christ? _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________
