We are here on this earth to serve others, not live a life of a king or queen. Our reward as a Christian will be to live in Heaven for eternity. Jesus sat down with his Disciples and they began to ask him who would be the greatest in Heaven among them. Jesus said, But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth (Luke 22:26,27).
Jesus was born in a humble animal stable. He told him Disciples, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head (Matthew 8:20). He didn’t live a life on this earth as a king. He lived a humble life and lived a life of service to others. He taught his disciples to love others, to care for others and to help them. Jesus healed the sick, fed the multitude and taught the people about God.
Mark 6:7-11 teaches us how we are to witness to others about Jesus. And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse: But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats. And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Matthew 20:28 says: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Romans 12:1 says: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Ephesians 6:5-8- Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
Revelations 2:19- I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
