be great in your community, let him minister to the community. And if you want to be the first of all, make yourself the servant of all. Be like the Son of Man, who came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life to redeem many.”
Be like the Son of Man, who came not to be served, but to serve.
Like the humble wooden chalice that holds the precious consecrated blood of Christ, we are fragile vessels, worn out and cracked, that contain the Risen Lord and his Gospel. Though sinful, we have been commissioned to proclaim the Gospel of salvation. Though unworthy, we have been chosen to be the dwelling place of our Lord. Jesus lives in us. Jesus moves and speaks through us. Jesus loves and continues his saving mission through us. Thus we are strong to resist sin and persevere amidst persecution, not because of ourselves, but because of Jesus who lives in us.
