A major part of Christ's purpose while here on earth was to serve, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)
If we make the decision to become a Christian, we must pattern our lives after Him whose name we bear. Our society tends to look down on those who serve us and always feels we ought to be served. However, this mindset is completely opposite that of our Savior. He humbled Himself and became a slave. "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross" (Philippians 2:5-8
May we humble ourselves and seek to serve, rather than be served, following the example of our Lord and King.
