"Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me."
So much of what Jesus taught is encapsulated in this verse. Being a servant of God involves action and intention. Yes, a servant follows the master, but an excellent servant learns to anticipate what is the right thing to do. A servant learns from their master- they don't just follow. Everything we do for Jesus we learned from Him. We learn and we serve.
Holy Lord, you sent Jesus to walk this earth, and I am so grateful. He is the ultimate teacher, and I will continue to learn from His example as long as I am able. May I grow ever closer to you. Amen
