Imitating Jesus

“Just as the Son of Man did not come into the world to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 (NASB)
There is no question that as our Redeemer, Jesus has absolute authority over all. He has the right and the power to demand anything He wishes, and to treat us any way He chooses. Yet the example that He set for us in the incarnation was that of a humble servant who was fully dedicated to doing the will of God, even to the point of suffering on a cross. This is still the standard for anyone who would be His disciple.

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 60

“You know that the rulers of this world lord over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Matthew 20:25-28 (NLT)
