True Greatness

GUWG-ServeWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Talk about missing the point.

It’s Jesus’ final week on the planet. In the midst of the Last Supper, a dispute broke out among his disciples as to which of them was the greatest. Here’s how Jesus responded:

The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. You are those who have stood by me in my trials. And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

(Luke 22:24-30)

Want to be great? Be like Jesus: SERVE!
