Episode 33: Sermon from Clayton King, Its Not About You

In episode 33 of the CKM Podcast, Clayton King gives a message on Mark 8 and what it means to align ourselves with God's agenda. He talks about how we push our agendas on Jesus, hoping if we "tack on His name" to our own, we'll ultimately benefit. However, the truth is that we need to put ourselves aside and keep Jesus at the forefront.

He explores the importance of choosing the “Right Lord” in the context of Paul’s letter to the Romans (Romans 10:9-15).

What are you giving your life to? Who are you giving your life to?

  • Everyone gives their life to something.

  • Everyone gives their life to someone.
