Our model is the Suffering Servant.  All of us in the Body of Christ must come closer together, recognizing that we all serve the same Suffering Servant, the now risen Lord and  Savior Jesus said of Himself, ”Even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and  to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark l 0:45, NIV). And when He sent forth His disciples, He said, “As the Father has sent me, even so I send you” (John 20:21). The servant role, modeled on Christ, must be the unifying element in the  church  as we seek in our troubled world to fulfill the Master’s prayer “that they may be one as we are one.”
