Application for November 30- December 1, 2013 :: Matt 20:26-28

Matthew 20: 26-28

But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

===

This statement from Jesus is very counter-intuitive, is it not? “No, no, no”, the typical American thinks, “You become great and first by leading, by making sure that you don’t have to do the trivial, inconsequential, unpleasant work. Why would I want to serve and be a slave?”

But, as the verse points out, Jesus is our example. Jesus served us more than any other human could and he is now First and Very Great.

So, what is your goal. To act according to what the world thinks, or what Jesus says?
