The Servant King
Topic: Topical Scripture: Mark 10:35–10:45
How do you expect a king to treat his subjects?
A cruel king will oppress and mistreat his people, and perhaps a good king would be fair and show kindness. In either case, the king would have servants and slaves to cater to his every request.
It would be almost unimaginable to think that a king would serve those he rules over. But that is what King Jesus does. Things work differently in the Kingdom of God compared to earthly kingdoms. Jesus not only tells His followers to serve one another, but He sets the example for them, showing great humility as He does so. This begs the question - how well are we following the example of our servant King Jesus?
