“I want to be a nobody for Jesus”
My friend, Lindsay
I don’t want/need to lead the parade.
As Dr. King explains it, “Drum Major Instinct” isthe desire to be first, to lead the parade. It desires recognition, importance, attention and being first. He recollects that it is what James and John possessed when they asked Jesus to sit beside him in glory, one at the right and the other at the left
And I’ll be sitting at the right hand of Jesus (as gatekeeper) and when I see you up here at the gate , I’ll turn to Jesus and say, “Here comes trouble – send this fellow right back from where he came!”
