Power down

Friday October 23rd, Mark10:  41When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. 42Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43Not so with you.  I sometimes think the ten were indignant because they thought James and John had gotten to Jesus first with a request they all had in mind.  We live in a power down world.  But the counter cultural ministry of Jesus came to bring us a grace down world.  Power down structures send the blessings up to those at the top and the responsibilities down to the victims at the bottom.  The Grace down world of Jesus sends the blessings down and the responsibility up.  It may seem counter intuitive, but it is the definition of love.
