Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

– Matthew 20:25-28 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Followers of Jesus Christ should be marked by an extraordinary bent toward serving others. Leadership is not based upon power, but humility. Yet this servant mandate also opens opportunities. How many doors for ministry could be discovered if we are constantly looking on how to serve others? You will find that as you lose your life, you will find it. As you put others first, God esteems you and will make you great.
