What Path are You On?

22 Oct 2012 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

“But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all.”

For us, what does it mean to be slave of all?  The answers are easier after considering what “to serve” or “slave” mean.  We commonly associate them with activity that is menial or demeaning.  But the sense in which Jesus uses the terms include any act that is noble and unselfish, any gesture that affirms and encourages others, and any deed that is done with kindness and generosity.  James and John were looking for the glory but Jesus defined that path as one of service.  It is the same for us today!  Are you on the “right” path?
