"But many who are first will be last, and the last first." - Matthew 19 V30

"...but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant." - Mark 10 V43

The world operates on the principle of survival of the fittest. He who is rich and/or powerful have prominence in society or in the world stage. But Christ taught us that the opposite is true in His kingdom. The greatest have to be servants first. The last will be first and the first last. He who humbles himself will be exalted and he who exalts will be humbled. Christ left a perfect example of humbleness and of a servant. Being in the form of God made Himself of no reputation and became obedient to the Father to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Let us follow the example of our Saviour and humble ourselves in all things as we serve our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
