ALL: Lord, we gather to rejoice in the fulfillment of Your goal: “I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” We rejoice in the sure promise of Your resurrection, and in the faith and hope of Your declarations: “All power is given to Me in heaven and on earth,” “Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world,” “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” We pray that we may be part of the joyful multi- tude who welcome You into their lives. May we know, may we follow on to know You. May You rise with us in each new day

And Jesus called [His disciples] to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are consid- ered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

(Mark 10:42-45)

[Abram] believed in Jehovah. This signifies the Lord’s faith at that time, which is evident from the very words. It is also evident from the connection of things in the internal sense, which is that while He lived in the world the Lord was in continual combats of temptations, and in continual victories, from a constant inmost confidence and faith that because He was fighting for the salvation of the whole human race from

pure love, He could not but conquer.

meant by “believing in Jehovah.” From the love from which anyone fights it is known what his faith is. He who fights from any other love than love to- ward the neighbor and toward the Lord’s kingdom, does not fight from faith, that is, does not “believe in Jehovah,” but he believes in that which he loves, for the love itself for which he fights is his faith. For example: he who fights from the love of becoming the greatest in heaven, does not believe in Jehovah, but rather in himself. For to desire to become the greatest is to desire to command others, thus he fights for command; and so in all other cases. And thus from the love itself from which anyone fights, it may be known what his faith is. But in all His combats of temptations the Lord never fought from the love of self, or for Himself, but for all in the universe, consequently, not that He might become the great- est in heaven, for this is contrary to the Divine Love, and scarcely even that He might be the least; but only that all oth- ers might become something, and be saved. As He also says in Mark:

The two sons of Zebedee said, “Grant to us that we may sit, one on Your right hand, and the other on Your left, in Your glory.” Jesus said, “Whoever would be great among

you shall be your minister; and whoever would be first among you, shall be servant of all. For the Son of man also did not come to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give His soul a ransom for many.” Mark 10:37, 43-45 This is the love, or this is the faith, from which the Lord fought, and which is here meant by “believing in Jehovah.”
