Servant King

Matthew 20:28 says:

“The son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

It just struck me today in church how extraordinary this is. Really, it’s completely ridiculous. That the God of the universe would decide to create a people, not that they could serve him, but that he could serve them.

An earthly king looks across the boarders and says, “Look at those people over there. I will fight to win them as slaves.”

But our Creator says, “Look at those people over there. I will fight to win them as sons.”

This is amazing.
