MARK 9:30-40

1. What is the point that John is making in III John 1:9-11?

Jealousy, power, control, caused him to not be a servant but a lord over the people and John is saying this is evil and not of God.

2. In James 2:1-5, what does James encourage us to do?

Don’t put one person above another. It doesn’t matter if they are rich, powerful, good looking, poor, without power, not good looking. You serve all men with the same love that God has given to you.

3. Read Song of Solomon 8:6. What does jealousy do in a persons life?

If you allow it to grow in your life it will consume you and destroy you. The more you fan those flames, dwell upon those things, the more devastating it is going to be. You have to give it to God, and move on.

4. According to Philippians 1:15-18, did Paul have a problem with other people preaching Christ, even if they did it out of the wrong motives?

Paul was not encouraging people to share Christ with the wrong motives. But to him, the important part was that the Gospel of Christ was going forth, people were getting saved, and Paul rejoiced in that, not in their wrong motives.
