If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives
his own heart, this one's religion is useless. James 1:26 (NKJ)
And James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, came up to Him (to Jesus), saying to
Him, "Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask of You." And He said to
them, "What do you want Me to do for you?" And they said to Him, "Grant that we
may sit in Your glory, one on Your right, and one on Your left."
But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to
drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
And they said to Him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink
you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.
But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those
for whom it has been prepared."
And hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John. And calling
them to Himself, Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as
rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority
over them. But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among
you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His
life a ransom for many." Mark 10:35-45 (NAS)
"I (Jesus) do not receive glory from men; but I know you, that you do not have the
love of God in yourselves.
"I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another shall come
in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory
from one another, and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?
"Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father; the one who accuses you
is Moses, in whom you have set your hope.
"For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote of Me. But if you
do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?" John 5:41- 47 (NAS)
