Serving others is not second nature to me. I prefer being served than serving others. (Just being honest.)
But in our recent trip to Jakarta to attend the World Prayer Assembly, I was privileged to travel with a man with such as servant attitude.
He would offer to take the pictures for us.
When Nano, one of our Indonesian brothers from Every Nation’s iPhone was low on battery, this guy offered to turn on his MacBook to juice up Nano’s phone.
I was his room mate for a few days. He noticed that I would roll up the comforter to make it an extra pillow since we only had one. The next day, he requested an extra pillow from room service.
Maybe it was because Jonathan Camcam worked in the hotel industry for years (Opryland Hotel and the Radisson in Nashville)?
Probably. But I think he just understood firmly what Jesus said in Mark 10:43.
Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
I’m glad he’s part of our team as one of our discipleship pastors and the one who leads our intercessory prayer team.
I’m also glad because I will have a consistent example before me of what it means to serve as Jesus served.
