Not so with you
There's always a Pecking Order in the Kingdom of this Earth. You can tell it, in subtle ways. Who gives way when two people are talking at the same time? Whose jokes are laughed at, even when they're not funny? You see this going on in offices. Who is allowed to ramble and pontificate in conversation, and who isn't? Who has to say, ?I'm sorry, ? and who doesn't have to say ?I'm sorry?? Go to a high school cafeteria. You will find a table where the jocks and cheerleaders sit together, and no geeky guy would ever try to go sit there. Why not? There are no rules against it. It's the Law of the Pecking Order.

It is stronger by far than any law that any government will ever pass. Nobody will violate it, because everybody knows how a human being can be crushed by it. It just crushes the spirit. This is the way things are in the Kingdom of this Earth. And Jesus says,

  • ?You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.? ''vs. 25''

    Of course. That's the way things go. Then He says these four words that change everything: Not so with you.

    Serve or be served
    When Jesus, who is God, came to serve and not to be served, who are we compared to him? We ought always to imitate him and serve always, instead of expecting others to serve us. Try serving others and see the difference it makes in your lives!

    Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of God
    That passage teaches us not to be selfish . In the world today a lot think of themselves before others.Jesus says, it should not be so.No matter what we think there is this inherent joy in putting others first

    Are you willing to serve
    Jesus was saying that no one is above serving. we all have to serve. Even Jesus served the people. At the last supper he was a servent to his people by washing their feet. Even God serves us when he blesses us. when Jesus died for us it was because he was our friend. we must be willing to be a servant before we can be served

    There is no one who has given up home,brothers or sisters,mother,father or children,or land,
    for my sake and for the gospel,who will not receive in this age a hundred times as much-houses, brothers and sisters,mothers and children,and land-and persecutions besides;and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last,and the last first.Mark 10:28-31

    Jesus`s serve
    When He was on earth He did His miracle, cast away the devil, heal the people, teach people. Of course He is still serving us by His holy spirit, because Jesus, Father and Holy spirit is one individual. By His holy spirit He teach us, make His miracle and do the same job as He did 2000 years ago.

    In what ways did Jesus serve when He was on earth? In what ways is He still serving now?
    Nurturing us with his sacrifice and His Word - the first giving us strenght and the second - it is the Water with which we can help grow the seeds our actions fruits of a pure soul a healthy fif tree. That childhood song comes to mind...per fare l`albero ci vuole il frutto per fare il frutto ci vuole l`albero per fare l`albero ci vuole il seme per fare il seme ci vuole il frutto. In essence to make the tree you need the seed to make the seed you need the fruit to make the fruit you need the seed and to make the seed you need the tree etc etc...

    Jesus was a teacher, healer, friend and our Lord of Kings. We worship Jesus because we want to go to Heaven someday. He teaches heals and many other things each and every day.

    A Mother's Request

    Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to him with her sons, kneeling and asking a certain thing of him. He said to her, "What do you want?"
    She said to him, "Command that these, my two sons, may sit, one on your right hand, and one on your left hand, in your Kingdom."
    But Jesus answered, "You don't know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?"
    They said to him, "We are able."
    He said to them, "You will indeed drink my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with, but to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it is for whom it has been prepared by my Father."
    When the ten heard it, they were indignant with the two brothers.
    But Jesus summoned them, and said, "You know that the rulers of the nations lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you, but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. Whoever desires to be first among you shall be your bondservant, even as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

    Matthew 20:20-28
