Our Servant Jesus Christ

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

While reading my morning devotional, I ran across this verse and I found the word minister to be defined in the Greek as servant. I thought to myself what a burden Jesus must have carried His 33 years here on this earth. I feel in times of distress such as I am in now, that it is to much for me to continue on, and then my thoughts race through my head at all the things Jesus Christ our GOD in the flesh endured throughout His life here on this earth for such a sinner as I am. All I can do is tuck my head in sorrow and put on my armour and continue the fight while seeking His help.

He came to serve His children including me and He continues to minister (serve) me because He chose me and He loves me and He says He will never leave me He is my helper in times of need and in times I’ll never know about. Heb 13:5 …and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

He also sent me a Comforter that I must learn to trust in my times of need.

Jn 16:7-11 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Please pray for this needy creation.
