Chapter 10:41 Hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John.

Chapter 10:42 Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them.

Chapter 10:43 “But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant;

Chapter 10:44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.

Chapter 10:45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

This sums up the Christian life very well in describing in that we are suppose to be: servants to others. I relate it to JOY. Jesus first, Others second and You third. The ten disciples got that mixed up but Jesus with a love like no other explained to them the order correctly.
