Mark 10:45 - "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Jesus gives the perfect example of a servant’s heart that is to be emulated. When some of the disciples asked Jesus to sit in places of honor when He returns in His glory, Jesus had to teach them what was more important; servanthood. Jesus as the eternal Son of God left heaven to walk on the earth and modeled servanthood, even to the point of laying down His life to save many. Thus, the followers of Jesus Christ are to follow His example by not seeking to lord over others and be served, but rather serve in humility as Jesus modeled.
