Servant Of All

Mark 9:33 “They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, 'What were you arguing about on the road?'
34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, 'If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.'"
(NIV)

************

Oft times it has been said,
The way up…is down;
To be great…we all desire,
Nobody wants to be the clown.

But have we stopped to think,
Of what our LORD did mean;
When He girded Himself with a towel,
And, before His disciples did lean?

He who was made a little lower,
Then the angels at His birth;
That He might experience death,
That we might have “new birth”.

And, then Christ Jesus washing,
The feet of His disciples;
Becoming a servant for them,
He…who had not known sin.

Do you suppose He was teaching,
A lesson we needed to know;
That the farther we ascend,
The farther down we need to go?

If we would be great in His kingdom,
A servant we must become;
The way up…is down,
And, not agreeable to some.

Is this the way to rule and reign,
To share a place on high;
Certainly not the world’s way,
This, we cannot deny.

Yet, isn’t His way always best,
On His judgement…we can rely;
His plan for us…so far-reaching,
That too…we can’t deny.

The way up…is always down,
Humble yourselves and in His time;
He shall exalt us…as He has said,
A waste of our time…to try to climb.

His ways are always best,
And they are Eternal…too;
Our ways so temporary,
We’ve found this to be true.

Gird yourselves…fall on your knees,
And, do the Master’s work;
A thing of beauty shall emerge,
And, God will get the glory!
