Who Are We?

Mark 10: 42-45

42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be a slave of all. 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.”

Sometimes we wonder what our lives are all about.  We wonder why we are on earth and the purpose of our lives.  When we are young, life seems such a puzzle. We talked to guidance counselors and we took tests trying to discover our passion and our talents.

If we are Christians, we should know that, whatever else we choose to do, we imitate Christ.  That means we infuse our lives, our work, our play, our projects and our relationships with the life and teachings of Christ.

In this scripture, we are told that Christ came into this world to serve and to sacrifice for others.  If this is Christ’s purpose, then it becomes our purpose.

Service is not something we do.  It is who we are.

May the love of Christ be with you
