John 12:26 - My Father will honor the one who serves Me

NIV Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
KJV If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
NASB "If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him."
John 12:26


A servant is one who accepts and acknowledges a place beneath those whom he serves, one willing to forsake the systems of social status on our human scale of values. Servants are viewed as performing the unworthy tasks considered beneath those whom they serve. But Jesus says that those who function as His servants-serving the world in His name-will be honored by the heavenly Father. Every true servant will ultimately be honored by the One whom they serve and who has promised them honor for that service! If we follow and serve our King, in that act of service we are elevated to a place of honor!
