The natural man usually wants to compete for the best in most things. You see the competitive spirit in sports, business, and among siblings. The spiritual man, however, does not compete for first place.
On the contrary, people who are led by the Holy Spirit will esteem others higher than themselves.
Two of My disciples competed with the other disciples to sit next to Me in My kingdom. My response to them was the same response that I give to you today.
I responded with this question, "Can you drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They responded with a firm, "Yes." They did not understand that they would soon drink from the cup of suffering and be baptized by fiery trials. Ask My Holy Spirit to help you today to give you a servant spirit that is willing to lay down your life for Me.
