But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many. (Mat 20:25-28)
A call to serve. Not as lords, masters, or any other sort of hierarchy of leadership over others, but the servant of all. We are called to serve Christ, serve one another, and serve those without that are in need. We are called to give ourselves as a living sacrifice to our Lord. We are called to disciple and minister to one another in love and in the Word. We are called to go with the Gospel to this lost and dying world in service and in love.
We are not called to a job, a career, or for the world's accolades. Our retirement is out of this world. We are called to a lifetime of servant-leadership that glorifies our GOD and equips and encourages GOD's people to exercise their faith. Just as Jesus Christ came to serve His people, and to offer Himself in our place and to pay our sIn debt, so we are to offer ourselves to GOD and in service to others.
GOD's people are to serve Him by serving others, as His ambassadors, we minister to those in need. We serve one another in ministry and education in the Word that we may grow as His disciples. We share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with every one, so those who hear the Good News and believe on Him and in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
