"Whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all."
- Mark 10:43,44
 
Many of you have had salesmen and women selling products door to door that belong to pyramids. At the base are the great mass of workers; at the top are those who hold the corporate power and wealth. Those at the top give the orders and enjoy the limelight, while those below them must obey and remain unknown. So it is in some governments. Jesus noticed this and pointed out to His disciples how the world's rulers and great men lord it over the rest.
 
In Christ's church, it is not that way. Jesus said, "It shall not be so among you." To get a true picture of the church, we must turn the . . .

In Christ's church, it is not that way. Jesus said, "It shall not be so among you." To get a true picture of the church, we must turn the pyramid upside down. At the top we find the great mass of God's children. At the very bottom we find one Man alone, bearing the weight of everything above Him: Jesus. There at the bottom, where no one else would want to be, is Jesus, doing the menial work. What is His reward? that He could do what He wanted, namely, cheerfully give up everything he had and become a nothing, a slave, in order to save us. In business and politics someone that low on the ladder is a zero; in God's kindgom He is the Number One Man.
 
Christian friends, I wonder about us. Is that our understanding of greatness? Are we gladly serving, doing tasks that my be unnoticed? Is the purpose of our serving to please our LORD, rather than to gain the applause of people? If we are willing to be a servant, we can achieve true greatness.
 
      No service in itself is small,
      None great, though earth it fill;
      But that is small that seeks its own,
      And great that does God's will.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY- Little things done in Christ's name are great things.
