He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” - Mark 9:35
At day’s end this is lesson time for the circle of His closest friends. It is such a hard lesson to learn in their honor and shame society. No one wants to be last of all. We feel the same way. But Jesus will make it easier as He illustrates for them what service means.
Let us pray to understand that being number one is not a kingdom goal. Seeing Christ in each other is.
