A Command to Serve

by admin

One of the themes we have recently seen repeated in John’s Gospel is a clear call – a command – to serve. In 12:25-26, John records that Jesus said, “The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” In the next chapter, John again quotes Jesus: “Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.” (13:17) These words of our Lord Jesus must not be taken lightly.
