Jesus for some strange reason said just the opposite of human logic to include His last night in human form with His disciples! Could this have anything to do with the fact that even after He died, rose again and ascended into Heaven they still debated the role of the law and how to gain His favor?
The final level!
“Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.” – Luke 22:25-27
Why in Heavens name did The King of Kings keep coming back to this servant idea?
Could it have anything to do with His teachings that Love for your neighbor fulfilled All the law and the prophets?
I do not write to convince you I am right – I write to offer you hope in the midst of Hell! I write because I went through that Hell and for me it was called religion! You will never measure up to what religion says you “should be” but you will always be Loved by The God who says “I made you just the way you are!”
Jesus created an upside down world in which and through which we can get a glimpse of God IF we seek that! When I got a glimpse of God I was looking into Eternal and Unconditional Love like I had never known – BUT it’s a journey and Not a destination! Religion is a destination of self-imposed perfection based on comfortable laws that make you think you are “ok” with God!
When a person finds Jesus they find no condemnation, no shame and no guilt – Only Love! Being a servant IS Being Love!
