EFFECTIVE SERVICE

Matthew 20:26-28 

 

But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus’ statement encouraged Peter to ask a question. It may have occurred to him when Jesus told the rich young man that if he followed Him he would receive treasure in heaven. Peter asked Jesus what those who had made this sacrifice could expect to receive. Jesus assured the disciples very definitely, “Truly I say to you, God would reward them for leaving what they had left and following Him.

In the human flesh, Jesus “gave” of Himself all day long. He lovingly and patiently taught, He healed, He blessed, He encouraged, He served. Jesus had very clearly taught His disciples by His example, “Whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.

 

Memory Verse: James 2:18
