It's all in the serve

Michael W. Smith has a song called "All in the Serve"
I like the song, but mostly I appreciate the truth there.
It IS all in the serve.
When I am given an opportunity by God to serve someone
I am overcome...overwhelmed with gratitude
and feel, then more than any other time,
that I am fulfilled -
I am doing what I was created to do.
I was given such an opportunity today,
and I have to admit,
it is such a blessing that it is hard to call it service.
What may have been a 'normal' day
is now an extraordinary day
Here is what really puts me in awe though -
Matthew 20:28 says
"...just as the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to SERVE,
and to give His life a ransom for many."
Chris came to serve us.
How can that be?
The very creator of the world, 
came to serve those He created.
I think about how I feel when I serve someone
and dare to begin to imagine that Christ would feel the same 
toward serving ME...
That not only does He bend down to help and comfort and see me through
but it brings Him JOY.  
Once again, I am overwhelmed and broken by His grace.

Yes, Christ came to serve. I talked about this in my CCD class tonight. My fourth graders found it hard to believe that Christ washed others feet. We need to be of service to others like Christ...
Great post!
