November 12th – Mark 10:45

Mark 10:45 

I am thankful Jesus came to ransom His life for mine

Today’s world equates greatness with influence and fame. But Jesus says greatness isn’t found in power and glory. Rather it’s measured by our ability to live lives of sacrifice as servants and slaves to others. And He knows of what He speaks. As Creator of the world, Christ sits on His glorious throne in heaven. Yet at the request of the Father, He willingly left that throne. Out of great love, Jesus came to earth to become our sin substitute. Even when that meant not coming in pomp and circumstance. Or being welcomed with a grand parade. But instead coming in humility in the form of a servant. And facing hurt, betrayal, torture, and ridicule, all to offer Himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sins. God makes one thing abundantly clear. The greatest in His sight are those who humbly serve. And as slaves of Christ, what a privilege it is to serve others as our Lord came to serve us.
