I'm reading through the Gospel of Luke and recently came to these verses that blew me away.
Luke 12:35-37 (ESV)
Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning, and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them.
Now, we all know the story of Jesus washing the disciples feet before his crucifixion, that great act of servant leadership. Books have been written on it, sermons preached about it, selfish leaders criticized by it. But I always saw this as an act Jesus only did before his death to be an example to us and to display his humility. In the illustration Jesus uses above, he indicates that in the coming kingdom, he (yes, Jesus) will serve those stewards who are ready and waiting for his return. Jesus will serve us in eternity? Apparently, if we are awake, ready, and waiting for him. That blows my mind.
