day no. 13,254: upside down kingdom‏

Matthew 20:25-28

25 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 26 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Everyone wants to rule the world and everyone without Christ in them would rule the world the exact same way: using authority and power to get what they want most, even if it meant others going without what they wanted most.

Not so for those in whom the Spirit of Christ dwells.

It cannot be so for the One who lives within came to lay down His life and bids you do the very same.
