Do you serve others or expect to be served?

Luke Bible Background

New Testament: Luke 22.25–26

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 22.1–30 on April 29, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Amazingly, the disciples of Jesus disputed among themselves, while they were with Him, as to which of them was the greatest!

And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves.”

– Luke 22.25–26

When you think of Christians and when you think of the church, do not think of it as being like the world, because it is not. Just about everything is different, and often the reverse of the way the world believes and functions.

The world looks to be served, but Jesus taught us to look to serve.

Questions:

  • Who is the greatest in the mind of Jesus?
  • Do you lovingly serve others?
