“The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28 NKJV

Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life so that we could be loosed from the power of sin and delivered from the power of Satan. He came so that we could be God’s possession and belong fully to Him. He came because He loved us, and He knew how much we needed Him. He came to make the heart of His Father glad, and to bring His joy into our lives. He came to the lowly place so that He could lift us to the highest place. He became poor in earthly things so that He could make us rich in heavenly things. He laid aside His glory and took up our humanity; He laid aside the praises of the heavenly host and made Himself of no reputation; He laid aside His heavenly home and dined in the home of sinners; He laid down His rights as God and took up a towel and a basin; He laid aside the splendor of His throne and endured the shame of the cross.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9 NKJV
