The Price of Christian Fame

James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, came up to Jesus, saying, “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?”

They said to Him, “Grant that we may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your glory.”

But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?”

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.”

Hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John. 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 this way 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 of all. 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 them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

In a recently released documentary titled “Elvis Presley: The Searcher”, an entirely secular produced biography for HBO on one of the most iconic figures in American history, the two-part biopic covering his entire life showed how time after time, Elvis attempted to return to the roots of his church upbringing. Several times, beginning from the outset, specific mention was made of his personal belief that God was going to “do something special” in his life. Naturally, the makers of the documentary concluded that although his life was cut short by prescription drug abuse, this was nonetheless accomplished by the tremendous influence his body of music and movie appearances effected on the culture and music industry. Yet they still showed how in his private life, when things were the most difficult and when he was often dissatisfied with his achievements, he repeatedly returned to trying to get in touch with God personally. Both by the title of the documentary and its content, although he was raised in church and revisited those roots, he was still constantly searching.
