Wayne Gretzky may be “The Great One” in hockey lore, but there is truly only one great one who has transcended time and space and left the right hand of God and introduced himself to a sinful and fallen world with a clear vision and intent. Matthew 20:28 says, “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Jesus came to serve mankind with utmost humility and the service was manifested with paying the ultimate price which was reflected by His redemptive work on the cross. When reflecting on what the bible says about Jesus nature, work and character, it is evident that he did nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
