“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45, NLT)
“One of the most indelible abilities of Jesus was to stay on target. His life never got off track … He kept his life on course.
Anyone near Christ for any length of time heard it from Jesus Himself. “The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them” (Luke 19:10) …. The heart of Christ was relentlessly focused on one task. The day he left the carpentry shop of Nazareth he had one ultimate aim – the cross of Calvary.”
