Take Up Your Cross November 4th 2015

God’s style is humble and unassuming not forceful, prideful, and pretentious.

And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:44-45 KJV)

In Jesus’s day, as is the case as well today, many earthly rulers set themselves up to be rulers of all despising or ignoring any power other than their own leadership.  Often earthly rulers have no room for any other authority, especially having the supernatural power of God ruling over them, rather desiring themselves be the highest rule or rank and for those beneath them to follow in a “herd mentality.”

God sent His Son Jesus to this world as a Servant.  A humble servant who leads wayward sheep gently from a lowly position on His knees rather than a prideful hovering above others.  Jesus is a supernatural leader, but never asserts God’s kingdom by force, but rather by being lowly in nature and a living as an example of God’s unconditional love for mankind and leading from a gentle nature infused with the supernatural power and strength of God.

Jesus perfectly represented the characteristics of God as He existed for a time upon this earth.  Mankind often likes to pump himself up creating a picture of importance in his earthly role of authority.  Those who operate according to the “spiritual hierarchy” set in place by God understand the value of godly leadership by sacrificing and serving alongside others from godly humbleness rather than ruling over them by force and human fortitude which aligns up with the dark nature of the god of this world.
