"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many"
Of all the people ever to set foot on planet earth, Jesus Christ has the most right to be served. As God in the form of a human being, he had every right to demand the service of everyone he encountered. But amazingly he insists that his earthly calling was not to be served but to serve. And his service was extraordinarily costly - the ransom he came to pay to liberate us from sin and judgement was his own life laid down on the cross. God's Son was treated as a sinner, so that sinners can be treated as God's sons.
