If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.
Jesus gave us a clear instruction that following Him is a matter of serving Him. And how is it that we serve Him? We serve Him mainly by serving others. Remember that He said, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many"(Mark 10:45). Knowing that the work that Jesus came to do was to serve others, those who follow Him should be doing the same. Moreover, we see He gave to us a means of recognizing His presence by noticing those with servant's hearts. Those who are serving others do so because Jesus lives in them and has command over their lives. This then brings us to applying this truth to our own lives by asking ourselves how we might serve others and what others might see in us?
