Todd continues this series on the spiritual disciplines and drawing near to Christ. Christ learned obedience through suffering, and we learn Christlikeness through serving like him. There is no joy, nor freedom in a self-obsessed life. Mark 10:45 says, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." We can learn from Christ's example and live a life of service without seeking praise or being noticed.
