The Servant of All
Passage: Mark 9:30–9:41
"The order of life for the disciples in their relationship to each other is to be the service of love. By transforming the question of greatness into the task orientation of service, Jesus established a new pattern for human relationships which leaves no occasion for strife or opposition toward one another... The disciples cannot order their relationships as they please but are to recognize in one another men under whom they place themselves as servants." —William L. Lane, The Gospel of Mark, 340.
