Luke 22:24-27

A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. Jesus said to them, The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

Music has a way of changing our lives.

Our Text this morning tells us about 12 men who aren’t into sharing.

Matthew 20:25-28

In other words ā€“ if you want to be great in the Kingdom of God you’ve got be a servant.

Luke 22:19-20

This all took place at the Last Supper… the template for our observance of Communion time.

John 13:8
John 13:14
Acts 20:7

You can take communion all by yourself but Jesus designed communion to be a time when we would “come together” and eat this meal along with other Christian brothers and sisters.

Ephesians 5:21

Servanthood lies at the heart of who we are as Christians. And communion reinforces this for us.

I Corinthians 11:17
I Corinthians 11:20-30

It’s a time when we’re reminded that Jesus gave us a powerful example of servanthood.

And when we finally get communion right… it’s a time when we learn to love each other so much that we really want to be servants of one another.
