Word for Today
The Word (42)-Greatness is in Serving.
“But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant ” (Matthew 23:11).
Greatness is in humility and service to humanity. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ washed His disciple’s feet to show us example of humility and service.
Today, all over the world, both in the church and outside the church, we have leaders who want to be served by their subjects. The greatest teacher who ever lived is telling us that to be great, we must be willing to serve with humility. Many people are jobless today, not because there is no work, but because they are highly selective of what they want to do.
If you believe in the truth, go out sharing the word of truth with others. Your have just one master, that is the truth of the gospel. Stop running around. The words below are from the Lord Himself:
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ ” (Matthew 23:9-10).
Father, please give me the grace of greatness in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
