Jesus called the apostles and said, “You know that the acknowledged rulers of nations have absolute power over people and their officials have absolute authority over people. But that’s not the way it’s going to be among you. Whoever wants to become great among you will be your servant. Whoever wants to be most important among you will be a slave for everyone.
It’s the same way with the Son of Man. He didn’t come so that others could serve him. He came to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many people.” (Mark 10:42-45 GW)
God's kingdom is so different when it comes to authority. It's upside down from what we know in the world. But then, God is different from all humans, and humbled Himself for our benefit.
If you seek greatness, seek to serve others. God honors this ambition. ©Word-Strong_2014
