  • Eziokwu Raphael Ohen on Matthew 20:26
    But it shall not be so among you: But whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister. Rather than minister some translations used servant. The important thing is that a Christian should serve or minster to the needs of people. Jesus came to serve. Those who came in His name must follow His steps. They must serve the needs of neighbours, church members, friends, colleagues, co-travelers and even enemies, who are less privileged, deprived of their right, oppressed, depressed, sick, ignorant, weak, faithless, orphans, widows and widowers, illiterate, etc. In this talk Jesus was telling Christians to serve because service to humans will build them up. In the church people should not be looking for high sounding names, praises, colours, titles, opportunities for eloquence, to be noticed in wonders but visit the sick, those absent from church and fellowship, help the poor, support new converts and backsliders, visit the aged, support widows and widowers, sweep and clean church without asking for notice, attend to community activities to bring security, harmony and physical development without posing as lords or masters, etc
