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 Mark 10:45, Jesus sets a profound example of humility and sacrifice. It is a captivating statement coming from the King of Kings, who chose to put others before Himself. Instead of demanding to be served, Jesus demonstrated His love by serving others, ultimately giving His life for humanity.

This verse reveals the essence of Jesus’ mission and His heart for humanity. Service in the eyes of Jesus is not just an action but a lifestyle. It is a call to put the needs of others before our own, to love selflessly, and to use our gifts for God’s glory. Jesus shows us that true greatness in the Kingdom of God is measured not by what we acquire, but by what we give away.

Understanding this helps us to realize that every act of service, no matter how small, is significant in God’s eyes. It encourages us to look for opportunities to serve those around us, reflecting the love and grace of Christ in practical ways.
