What We’re Learning: Jesus Said What?!
Jesus said a lot of things that would sound a little crazy to us today; Jesus said a lot of things that sounded crazy to the people of His day. But everything said was meaningful. Let’s take a deeper look at some of the things that might make us say, “JESUS SAID WHAT?!” and what they mean in our lives today.

Jesus Said What?! Week 4: A King Who Serves?! (May 17, 2020)
- Main Point: Jesus is king of a different kind of kingdom, so He leads us to live a different kind of life.
- Main Scripture: Mark 10:42-45
- If you got to be king or queen for a day, what are some things you’d want to do?
- Read Mark 10:42-45. In your own words, what does is passage of Scripture saying?
- When was a time you put someone else before yourself?
- How did that make you feel?
- What keeps us from putting others before ourselves?
This lesson can easily go in the direction of “just be a good person who does good things.” Let us not forget that Jesus came to earth to serve and save us. He put us before Himself so much that He died to forgive our sins. It’s by believing in that that we are saved, not by how many good actions we do. Putting others first isn’t about being a good person to earn our way into heaven, it’s about loving others out of the great love God has shown us. As we practice putting others first, let’s do it out of thankfulness for God’s love for us.
Pick one person and at least one way you can put them before yourself this week. (ex: wash dishes without being asked, play a game your sibling loves, ask someone sitting by themselves at school to sit with you and your friends…) Then do it!
Ask your student(s) to share their prayer requests and close your time together in prayer.
