Jesus had a heart to serve to the degree that he served up himself that we might have the right to the tree of life. We know this is true for (St. Mark 10:45) says “For the son of man came not too ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many”. Thus, are we willing to serve others with the intensity that Jesus served us? We may not have to give our lives to the degree that we have to shed blood, but we will have to give of our time, resources, energies and efforts at a time when it is very inconvenient for us. In fact, God would have it no other way. To serve is not only Godly, but serving with the intensity of Christ Jesus will cost you something.
God Bless You
