This Passover was about 40 years before the Roman War. The Jews had a generation to think about accepting the Messiah. Largely, they refused to believe that Jesus was the Messiah. What words from this supper strike your heart and mind?
Remember what it is like to be the youngest in a situation?
When people don’t count you as much, too young, too inexperienced, too this or that.
Jesus gives us great wisdom here, a hard lesson, something to wrestle with all our days.
“But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.”
This is a hard thing to do, to keep in mind, as we grow and walk through life. When we have accomplished something, met some standard, risen to some level – To be as the youngest, to be one who serves, it goes against the very grain of everything around us (the world).
But it is the way of Jesus.
“But not so with you.”
Let us hear the voice of our Master, our King and Saviour. Let us hear, trust and obey.
* God Almighty,
Please help us to walk in Your word, to listen to Jesus, and be as the youngest, the one who serves.
Please help us to be more like Jesus each day.
