Serve One Another

Serve One Another

“Hosanna! Hosanna!” This declaration is translated ‘please, save us!’ and was the cry of the people as Jesus rode into Jerusalem seated on a donkey. For some, this was the anticipated arrival of a king; for others a political threat to the power systems in place. And for the early church, it established the pathway toward radical freedom. How might this Triumphal Entry shape the way in which we serve one another humbly in love?

Galatians 5:13-14

13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh[a]; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b]


[a] In contexts like this, the Greek word for flesh (sarx) refers to the sinful state of human beings, often presented as a power in opposition to the Spirit; also in verses 16, 17, 19 and 24; and in 6:8.
[b] Leviticus 19:18
