A Personal Recommendation

A Personal Recommendation

It is common practice to look for personal recommendations before trying something new. Jesus didn’t just recommend leading by serving to His disciples, He lived it in front of them, then commissioned them to follow in His footsteps. He calls us to live humbly with our God, to confidently expect to “receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Heb. 4:16), and to live for the Father’s approval alone. He tells us that exchanging power-driven leadership for leading by serving is worth it. Do you trust His recommendation?

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”—John 14:12

Prayer: Jesus, we trust that Your plans for us are for our good and the Father’s glory. Help us to follow You today, leading others by serving. We pray with confidence in You as the way, the truth and the life, amen.
