Mark’s Gospel emphasizes Christ’s power as well as his servant-hood. Jesus’ life and teaching turn the world upside down.
The world sees power as a way to gain control over others.
But Jesus, with all authority and power in heaven and earth, chose to serve others. He held children in his arms, healed the sick, washed the disciples’ feet, and died for the sins of the world. Following Jesus means receiving this same power to serve.
As believers, we are called to be servants of Christ. As Christ served, so we are to serve.
Operation Christmas Child is is just one of many great ways that we can be the “hands & feet” of Jesus. We will collecting shoe boxes until 11/18/12.
How has the Lord called you to serve?
Mark 16:20 And the disciples went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.
