One of the world’s most successful hotel chains is the Ritz-Carlton. The most important thing it is known for is its service. The company prides itself on the idea that its customers will be pampered with great service from the time they drive up and check in until the time they leave.
Jesus is going to teach us today in our study of John that as Christians, we too, should be known for our service. He will tell us that “blessed is he who knows this truth and does it.” If you are not feeling blessed in your life, maybe it’s because you are always seeking to be served rather than to serve others. As we will learn today, service is the pathway to success and blessedness in the Christian life.
May God sear in our soul these great truths contained in today’s text,
