Luke 22:27 (KJV)
For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
Despite the warning of Christ in this passage the issue of greatness has never been satisfied. Men, in a multitude of camps, strive to be known as the greatest.
Truly the greatest was and is Jesus Christ. Yet if He were to come today in the manner He came two thousand years ago, the spiritual leaders of our generation would want about as little to do with Him as the Pharisees did back then.
- Followed by only a hand full
- Always more concerned for the truth of His message than the reception of His message
- Despised and rejected and
- Killed at the urging of the multitudes
Jesus’ own testimony was that His followers would accomplish far more than He did (saving that He alone could take the sins of the whole world).
Greatness is misunderstood today but I expect that it is never found in this life but rather is evidenced by the influence a person has long after they have left this life.
