Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 221

  1. “No servant is greater than his Master” (John 13:16).

It’s far from easy to connect our way of living to that of Jesus in the first century. We dwell in an extraordinary abundance, far from the scale of those days in Judea. We live in a democracy–an expression of government that few if any had imagined in those days. We have freedoms and opportunities that so far exceed what the disciples could have known. And yet, even in their perceived limits, the desire to be served shines brightly enough that Jesus must address it again and again. How much more so for us? We are willing to acknowledge Jesus in worship, but have very little practice in the true mentality of serving. We want for ourselves and when we have what we want, we want even more. But you can’t follow a servant if you’re acting like a Master.
