Serving as Jesus Served

We are to live as Jesus lived and Love as Jesus loved. We must also serve as Jesus served. Jesus spent his ministry reaching out to people. He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and forgave those caught in sin.

Jesus did not take a position of superiority, but instead was willing to take the role of a servant. Even hours before he would give His life for us, he took the form of a servant as He washed the disciples feet.

Let's face it, we live in a "me-first" society. When ever we decide what we are going to do in any situation, we tend to figure out "what's in it for me?" first. This is NOT the attitude of a servant. In order for us to serve as Jesus served, we need to stop worrying about "what's in it for us?" and start working on doing what Jesus would do.

This will not be easy. It isn't in our nature to put others first. But this is what we must do. You see, end the end, it isn't all about us, but instead, it is all about Him!
