EFFECTIVE SERVICE

June 30, 2016

Thursday

 

Mark 10:45 

 

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

 

 

LESSON

 

Even the Son of Man had to follow the rule that Jesus just explained. He is the great example of it. His incarnation was not that of a potentate whom others had to serve, but that of a Servant who met the needs of others. His service extended to giving “His life” as “a ransom”.

The important thing is that we be people of service. People who serve others, not just benefiting from the efforts of others. People who are producers, not just consumers. Serving is not just the path to greatness in the kingdom, but also to true happiness. Shall we not follow both the example and teaching of Jesus, and live to serve others?

 

Memory Verse: James 2:18
