“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and go give his life as a ransom for many.”
Not what you’d expect when God comes to earth is it? God doesn’t need your good deeds. He needs to serve you. Hard to let the most important man in human history serve you? That’s ok, you’re not alone. We’ve been trying to help God out since time began.
Realize this. He doesn’t need your help. But you need His. So He sent His Son, Jesus, to help you out to serve you by serving up His Son, very God himself, on the cross. It is the greatest act of service ever that this God/Man would give His life for you. It was the dirtiest job that only Jesus could do. And He did it for the whole world. Even you.
