Are You a Humble Servant?

Mark 10:42-45

The apostles, in their arrogance, argued amongst themselves who would be the greatest in the Kingdom of God. Some even demanded to sit at the places of highest honor in the Kingdom alongside Jesus. These men, chosen by God to fulfill His purposes in laying the foundation for the Church, were by no means humble at this point in their lives. How this must have grieved our Lord! Therefore (Mark 10:42-45):

“Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, ‘You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.’”

Servants of God must be humble! It’s that simple. Are you a humble servant of God and men? For more on this topic, see:
