He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Asking my self what shall I peel away from my life daily in order to make this scripture a reality in my life?
What do I need to stop doing that is getting in the way of what God desires for my life?
Many people shy away from serving because there is an element of self-sacrifice. Either one believes him or herself to be too important to be serving others(pride), or serving cost more than we are willing to give.
Reading a verse from my daily scripture reading for today, Mark 10:44, brings me to tears at this moment. It reads, “And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.” I cry because I see so many ministries, corporations, and organizations, littered with people vying to be chief. Desiring so much to be above everyone else when the complete opposite is required.
We must serve first and foremost. Our leading comes from our serving. I look to my Lord and Savior Jesus as the example. Verse 45 says, “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” The King came to earth not to be served but to serve. Since I am the King’s child I must behave as so.
Will you join me in serving?
