When we serve others for the pure love of serving God,
we fulfill our call to follow in the example set forth by our Lord, Himself.
For Christ Himself came among us to serve.
Jesus had to be one of us,
so that he could serve God
as our merciful and faithful high priest
and forgive our sins. (Hebrews 2:17)
This service must be one of self-denial,
Only by this three-step 'formula' will it be true service
according to the example of our Savior.
will our genuine presence
in serving our brothers and sisters,
obtain God's reward.
