"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
We should notice that Christ is not fixated on being seated in Glory by the Father, but solely that He could accomplish His Father’s will. And in that same way, we as imitators of Christ should seek to serve the Father, because of what has been graciously done for us. Jesus does not seek to blow the horn of attention, but rather the drum of obedience – a consistent and faithful beat, to the point of death on a cross. We serve the purpose of the Father, to the exalting of the Son, and for the benefit of others to know Him. That is why service to others removes the focus off what you seek out of it.
PRAYER: O Lord, the death of Christ transfers us from death to life. Therefore, our lives are no longer our own, but our lives belong to you Lord. And because of that, whatever you need from me, your command is my pursuit. Amen
