We talk about climbing the corporate ladder. If you want to be great, you rise to greatness, but in the culture of the kingdom of God, Jesus flips it around. He says, “You really want to be the greatest? You descend to greatness.”
We are looking at a story about the disciples and Jesus in John 13. Here we find Jesus and the disciples having a supper together. It happens to be the last supper that they will have together before Jesus dies. In a couple of days, Jesus is going to be crucified.
