Matthew 20:28 Devotional

Verse image for Matthew 20:28, which reads, "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

– Matthew 20:28


Jesus didn’t come to be served. He came to show us a better way to live and forgive our sins.


We can mimic Jesus here by serving others. Meeting needs and praying are just two examples of serving. You can also find a local church to serve and give your time to. These are all simple applications of Jesus’ call for us to serve others.


Help me to find opportunities to serve others. As Jesus served, I want to serve – without restraint and without hesitance. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
