“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

Jesus isn’t the Messiah we expect. He turns worldly values upside down, because things are not as they appear. Two become one (v.8), adults become like children (v.15), the first become last (v.31), servants become leaders (v.43) and the blind become sighted (v.52). We have the choice of accepting the world’s standards and believe all there is to life is what we see. Or we can choose God’s values and live by them.
