Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” - Mark 10:43-45 (NIV)
When people see you or hear you do they know that there is something different about you? Have they seen you show love to everyone that is around? Have you gone out of your way to help someone? Do you ever wonder what people see when they look at you? They may see Jesus in you and still not like you.
Jesus was different, and He stated that He came to earth to give His life as a ransom for many and serve people. People still hated Him and Jesus reminds that He was hated before us. When people persecute us, they are persecuting Him. Hope that today your day that your life looks different because you serve others.
Jesus also said count the cost, meaning that you would consider all it means to follow Jesus. Is it worth it to you? I sure hope so, He gave everything to save us, and that's something worth living for. We can live for Jesus by serving others.
Jesus, use me to display You. Amen.
