Mark 10; The Highest Ambition


I am writing today from the beautiful Tampa Bay area.

Mark 10:42 But Jesus called them [to him], and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 

 10:43    But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 

 10:44    And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 

 10:45    For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. 

This is one of my most, if not my most favorite texts in all of Scripture. How can I have any higher ambition than the ambition of the Son of God: To serve others and give my life for them?
