Listen to the Word
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.” (Mark 10:45)
Jesus not only calls us to serve - he shows us how. He blazes the trail for us. God’s Son came to serve. When the High and Exalted One arrived on earth, he did not act high and exalted. He washed the smelly feet of his friends. He touched lepers. He spent time with children. He listened to losers and outcasts. He provided meals for hungry crowds. He prayed for people who despised him. Then as the definitive act of service for all time, he gave his life so you could be free.
If you want to know what a real servant looks like, look to Jesus. He traveled the path of servanthood. And he is calling you to follow him.
Live the Word
Keep your eyes open all day for opportunities to serve others, and take those opportunities as they arise.
