What Jesus teaches about Service


Have you ever felt a deep sense of fulfillment after helping someone in need? There’s a profound joy that floods your heart when you serve others with love and compassion. Jesus’ teachings remind us that service is more than just an act; it is a way of life. As we dive into this short devotional, let’s explore how we can embody the spirit of Jesus through acts of service, enriching not only the lives of those around us but also our own.

Join us on this journey to understand the beauty of serving others as Jesus taught. Together, we will uncover how small acts of kindness can make a profound impact and how we can be the hands and feet of Jesus in our everyday lives.

Bible Verse

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” — Mark 10:45 (NIV)


In this powerful verse, Jesus highlights the essence of true leadership and greatness. Rather than seeking to be served, Jesus, the Son of Man, came to serve others. His entire ministry on earth was a testament to this selfless love and dedication.

Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, healed the sick, fed the hungry, and even gave His life on the cross for our salvation. He demonstrated that true greatness is found in humility and service. By putting others’ needs before our own and serving with a pure heart, we reflect the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

Service is not about grand gestures but about the willingness to do small acts of kindness with great love. It’s about being there for someone in their time of need, offering a listening ear, or lending a helping hand. When we serve others, we become conduits of God’s love, bringing light into the darkest corners of the world.
