Birth Story (3)

On that first Christmas, Mary gave birth to a servant. In verse 28b of our Bible Reading today, Jesus talked about Himself. “The Son of Man did not come for people to serve him. He came to serve others and to give his life to save many people.” Jesus said that He was born to be a servant.
Jesus served both God and people. How? Jesus healed people. Jesus taught about God’s kingdom. Jesus prayed for people. Jesus told people about God’s plan of salvation. Jesus prepared His disciples to continue His work after He returned to heaven. Most importantly, Jesus obeyed God and kept God’s law perfectly. Jesus made it possible for us to live forever with Him.
God wants us to be servants, too. Like Jesus, we are all born to serve God and each other. I hope you will follow Jesus’ example and faithfully serve both God and other people.
