Re: Verse reading- Mark 10:35-45; John 13:12-17; James 2:14-17 (day four)  How do we know how to act as a Christian?  In any given situation, how do we know how to respond?  We have an example…Jesus has come to earth to show us how to respond to God.  As a child of God, our character, our behavior, our actions should follow the example of Christ.  In our reading today, Jesus gives us an example of servant hood.  There was an expectation on Jesus’ part that the disciples follow His example.  Albert Schweitzer once said, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.”  Schweitzer recognized what Jesus taught…if our lives do not look like Christ…if we do not follow His example…our relationship is not genuine.  There must be a visible obedience in our lives to confirm our true relationship.  Christ-likeness is our goal.  How are you measuring up?
