Bible Verse of the Week: The Son of Man Came To Serve

"The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many." -Matthew 20:28

I consider this verse to be spiritually inspirational. The majority of us have a natural desire to be great. This verse points out that even Christ Himself came to serve us instead of what seemingly should have been vice-versa. Contemplate on this: Jesus, as worthy and mighty as He is, did not enter earth or heal others with grandiose pomp. Instead, He came and traveled humbly, never carrying Himself with higher importance than those around Him. Additionally, He gave His life for sinners and those who despised Him. If we are to be imitators of Christ, as is commanded of us, we must at least practice humility by serving others as Jesus served us whom were undeserved of that grace. ~Jesselyn
