Christ Came to Serve

Narrated by Brad Rohlfsen

The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve… Mark 10:45

God’s Law can enforce obedience, but it cannot heal the sinful human heart.
Jesus did not come to enforce the Law but to fulfill it, and to heal our hearts by his death on the cross. Here Jesus shows God’s true nature: to serve and to save, to heal and to help.

As you are healed by his wounds, you will be changed; little by little, you will become like him, wanting to serve, to help, to love, to give. Make this your goal in life, to become more like your heavenly Father and his Son, your Servant and Savior.

REFLECT: Ponder ways to serve others in a Christ-like way.

PRAY: Help me see, Lord Jesus, how I can become more like you, and make me what you want me to be. Amen.
