Giving His life as ransom for many
Being given a title does not mean that now we can get others to do more for us, lord over others. Being given a title should mean we are now in a privileged position to serve more, to create a positive atmosphere where our friends and colleagues now work, to influence how our family treat each other, to lead by example. James and John were so competitive that they wanted make sure that they had the best seat in the house without understanding what it meant to have that privilege. Many of us are probably in the same boat as James and John, do not fully understand that to be called as a supervisor, a manager, a director, a leader means that we have greater responsibility towards others within our team, our division, our company, our ministry, our community, our country. Could we humbly serve and expect nothing in return? Do we have the courage to follow Jesus? To drink the cup that Jesus drank? To be ready to give our all and sacrifice in the way of the Lord?
