Luke 22:24-30

Author

Joel King

Scripture

Luke 22:24-30

Observations

· The disciples were concerned about and argued over who was greatest among them
· Jesus addressed the issue
· Those in secular government like to have authority and give themselves fancy titles, but followers of Jesus should be different
· Instead, those who are leaders should serve the most
· Jesus asks them who is greater the one who is eating or the one who is serving the food? The answer they would expect is the one at the table eating, but then Jesus points out that he is the one serving and not eating. Jesus is the greatest, and thus the one who serves is greatest.
· Jesus commends them for staying with him through thick and thin
· The authority that God granted to Jesus he now extends to them (with that authority comes the responsibility to serve as Jesus did with his authority)
· There will come a day that they will sit at the Divine table in heaven, and even have a place in ruling over others.

Application

· I need to be careful that I do not become preoccupied with achieving authority and fame over others
· I need to continue to develop the perspective that to serve Jesus well I need to seek to be the servant rather than the one who is served.
· Jesus gave up the glorious rights of Divinity to serve me, I can give up my rights to serve others.

Prayer

Jesus,
Thank you for loving me so much that you gave up your Divine rights that I might be reconciled back in to relationship with God. Please forgive me for putting so much energy in trying to move up the leadership ladder. Forgive my pride and arrogance. Continue to mold me, by the power of the Holy Spirit within me, to more and more become a leader that serves first. I want to be great, and as such, help me become the servant of the least.
In your name I pray, AMEN

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you should publish more about this topic, it might
not be a taboo subject but usually people don't discuss these topics.
To the next! All the best!!
