…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:43-45)
Throughout the New Testament, it is easy to find what God expects from Christians without going into theology. These verses are evident and leave no need to wonder what they mean. Much of these instructions will be in the words of Jesus.
The above scripture is clear for those who want to see it. Jesus gave his life a ransom for many, for the sins of the world. Only he could do that, but we, as Christians, may well need to give our life for another or for our faith.
The Gospel of Mark is defined in verse 45 as Mark presents the two-fold focus of Christ’s life; service and sacrifice. What’s a Christian to do? Mark tells you.
