FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20
Scripture: Mark 10:44
When Jesus said, “And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all,” He made clear precisely the attitude of servanthood that is required. The pathway up in the Kingdom is the pathway down in the natural. The path of servanthood is the path of promotion in the Kingdom. What exalts man in the natural and in the world is often what disqualifies man in the realm of the Spirit. Policies that make for great gain in the natural disqualify us from great gain in the realm of the Spirit. Jesus made it very clear that there was a distinct difference between His Kingdom and worldly success. If we want eternal success, we must choose to serve people.
