Jesus is ALWAYS Third Class . . .
The idea of First, Second and Third Class dates from the days of the stage coach. You couldn’t tell the difference between the three inside the stage coach. Every person was seated without distinction.
But when the stage coach came up to a steep hill, the distinctions emerged. The Second-Class passengers had to get out and walk. The First Class passengers remained in the coach. The Third-Class passengers had to get out and push.
Jesus is ALWAYS Third Class . . . and when people who claim to be followers of Jesus stay in the coach and let others do the pushing, it’s Time Out on the field.
Jesus said: “Here I am among you as one who serves” (Luke 22:27).
We are never more like Jesus than when we are Third Class. There is no higher calling than to be a servant. A God Flash
The Heart of a Servant Prayer
Give me the heart of a servant,
Tender and faithful and true.
Fill me with love, then use me, O Lord,
So that the world can see you.
