Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
I just love the way The Message tells the story. Put yourself in the disciple’s place. Jesus says…
“Whoever wants to be great must become a servant.
Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave.
That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not be served—
and then to give away his life in exchange for the many who are held hostage.”
Matthew 20:25-28 The Message
- What makes the argument that takes place at the beginning of this passage relevant to you?
- In Jesus’ kingdom what makes someone great?
- As stated in this passage what was Jesus’ purpose?
- Jesus’ attitude is very different from that of our human nature (and he’s actually worthy of the title Master). I know just tonight I was feeling a little weary of serving. But, we are called to serve where we are! What does Jesus’ precept about greatness call you to in your own life?
