Who is the greatest? (Need Not Serve)

Luke 22:24, 26

 We live in a world full of celebrities, superstars, divas, prima donnas, headliners, elite, and big shots.

  • Where we are used to being treated a certain way.
  • Where we are growing accustom to certain privileges.
  • Where we are an exception to the rule.

Who is the greatest?  The greatest in Jesus’ eyes and that Heaven recognizes is a servant of God. 

(Galatians 5:13, Mark 10:43, 44, Ephesians 6:7, John 13:34, 35)  The way to the throne is through the servant’s quarters.

             I.  (John 13:3-7)  Jesus is an example of what serving looks like. “Picking up the towel.”

  1. (Verse 3)  Only people who are secure, not insecure.
    1. People secure in God’s love for them – acceptance, value, and worth.
    2. People who know who they are doing it for – Jesus.
    3. People who know why they are doing it – gratitude, thankfulness, and appreciation.
  • Towel reveals humility.
  1. (Luke 14:18-20)  Why don’t people (disciples of Jesus) pick up the towel and serve?
  2. Like the disciples, we are preoccupiedwith self.
    1. Jesus washes feet.  Are you a foot washer or a foot mocker?
      1. Feet can be embarrassing.
      2. Feet can be hidden or concealed.
      3. Feet reveal where you have been and how you feel.
  • Dirty and stinky people’s feet look like betrayal, sin, and offense; they mean, rude and ugly.
  1. If you are going to be a foot washer like Jesus and serve…

1.  You are not waiting for a thank you.

2.  You are not waiting for an invitation.

3.  You don’t want recognition.

4.  You do it with a great attitude.

5.  You will be blessed by God.

6.  You are going to be in the company of Jesus.

7.  (Galatians 2:20)  It is a sign that He is Lord, Master, Boss.
