A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, November 15

Mark 9:35


Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all."


Thiese words from Jesus are difficult ones for me. They are simple and easy to understand, but not so easy to live out. It is sometimes difficult for me to remember to put others first. Often it is quicker or easier for me to take care of my own needs and move on. But my heart needs to always be open to seeing others and their struggles. I would like servanthood to be automatic and natural , as if by instinct. The more I practice, the more natural it will become, led by the Holy Spirit.


Holy Lord, help me to see myself as a servant, at all times, and in all situations. Let this become second nature for me. Amen

Servant hood

Mark 9:35

And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”

The Bible has a great deal to say about servanthood because it’s content is about the one Servant of all—Jesus Christ. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life for many. As Christians, our main priority in life is to follow in Jesus’s footsteps and serve God. However, as our lives get busy and we juggle priorities, it’s not always easy to know the best ways to do this.( A selfish saying…

Mark 9:35


He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said “Whoever wants to be first must take the last place and be the servant of everyone else.”


Jesus has shown us many times during his ministry that he has a servants heart. None is more important than when he washed the disciples feet in the upper room. If we truly wish to be a follower of Jesus, we must also be the servant of others. We should always be looking around us for ways we can help others.


Prayer: Gracious God, although I may not wash the feet of others, I hope my servanthood pleases you. Amen
