Readings for Sunday, October 17:

Is 53:10-11:  The suffering servant speaks of His life as a sin offering that His people may prosper enjoying a
long life.  Through His suffering He will bear the guilt of many.

Heb 4:14-16: 
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the high priest who shares all our weaknesses, except sin.  His
mercy comes to all who seek it.

Mk 10:35-45: 
James and John request a special honor in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus reminds them and
the other ten that anyone who aspires to greatness must be prepared to serve first.

Today’s Message: 
True greatness (holiness) is found in serving one another and by giving ourselves as did
Jesus who suffered that we might be justified.  He is our compassionate high priest in whom we have placed
our hop
