25 Dec BORN TO SERVE
“Christ was born to serve and save humanity from the world’s difficulties.” -RSD
Many people in the world today promise people total commitment in serving them when campaigning for positions of leadership in different spheres of life. But often times, they don’t fulfill their promises when they eventually attain such positions.
But, when Jesus came, he didn’t look for any opportunity to lead people rather, He started serving them. That was why even when He was leaving the earth to fulfill His ultimate assignment of paying the total price for humans failures, He demonstrated service to His disciples by washing their legs.
In this season of Christmas and celebrations, we should not forget to emulate the lifestyle of the Christ who is actually the celebrant of the season.
Hence, the Christmas season is beyond the decorations and celebrations but essentially the emulation of the servant attitude of Christ in all ramifications. We should serve our families, organisations, institutions, nation and people everywhere we find ourselves.
For who is the greater, the one who reclines at table (the master), or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am in your midst as One Who serves.
Luke 22:27 AMPC
