Entitlement, feeling special, is a common human trait indulged by most of us in various circumstances. There can be no allowance for personal ambition in attachment to Christ. Kinship to Jesus in the flesh rendered no advantage to his natural relatives. For real and saving connection to him each of them would have to be born from above. Nothing human brings credit. Grace alone admits us to divine favor through trust in the Redeemer. Servant-hood is the key characteristic of the true child of God and their nurturers in the faith. Jesus disarms and dispels our foolish pride through his self-revelation as the Son of Man who came to serve in the most ultimate way possible - “to give his life as a ransom for many”. He frees us from enslavement to satan, self, and sin.
