For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Now this is not a novel concept as we so thought. I mean Jesus came to serve. Not a hard thing to believe, but after this article from the Desiring God website, it took me to another level. It answers the question who does Jesus serve. That is where it was a flip on thinking, it is down right crazy to think about this but Jesus serves us. We don’t serve Him at all. In fact we cannot do anything at all for Him. The all mighty God does not need us, but because His love for us, He gives us opportunity. He provides everything, then we get to do the work that he provides for us. Wow, He loves us that MUCH! All we have to do is to respond. We respond to His service to us by just giving thanks to Him and in response we do what He ask of us.
After reading this I am totally blown away of how much He loves us. This changes the way I see things. It changes the way I look at work. I have this opportunity to do the things that God has placed in front of me, for no reason whatsoever. He loves us that much.
Thank you Lord!
