THE KING BECAME THE SERVANT

Jesus performed miracles and healings while on earth in the role of “servant” anointed by God, but this in no way suggests that his nature changed.

The King and creator of the creation, humbled himself and ministered to his subjects as a servant, even though he was King. Those who came to him, having their eyes opened to his true identity, would often worship him.

Only God can be worshipped.

Jesus ministered to people, taking the role of servant of God, even though he was God’s own Son in essence (his nature never changed). His “role” (for a lack of better words) did.

While on earth, he ministered in the role of servant, he now ministers in the glory of his Kingship.

1. Jesus is, was, and always will be divine.

2. Jesus came into this world to serve, not to rule.

3. During his earthly ministry, he ministered as a servant.

4. His true divine identity was veiled in his human flesh.

5. When the spiritual eyes of those who sought God were opened, they understood that he was more than an ordinary man, and they often worshiped him, and reverenced him.

Jesus is the King who laid aside his kingship authority in Heaven, and he came to minister to humanity. He submitted to the authority of his Father, who anointed him to do his will.

Jesus obeyed the Father completely, giving his life as a ransom for our sins. When he had fulfilled all the will of God, by his redemptive work, the Father restored to him the glory which he had with the Father before the world was.

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ~ John 1:11-14

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. ~ 2 Corinthians 8:9

And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. ~ Matthew 20:27-28

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have CRUCIFIED THE LORD OF GLORY. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:7-8
