    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:26

    El que me sirve, sígame; y donde yo estuviere, allí tambin estar mi servidor. Al que me sirviere, mi Padre le honrar.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 12:26

    Verse 26. If any man serve me]
    Christ is a master in a twofold sense: 1.

    To instruct men. 2. To employ and appoint them their work. He who wishes to serve Christ must become: 1. His disciple or scholar, that he may be taught: 2. His servant, that he may be employed by and obey his master. To such a person a twofold promise is given: 1. He shall be with Christ, in eternal fellowship with him; and 2. He shall be honoured by the Lord: he shall have an abundant recompense in glory; but how great, eye hath not seen, ear heard, nor hath it entered into the heart of man to conceive.

    How similar to this is the saying of Creeshna (an incarnation of the supreme God, according to the Hindoo theology) to his disciple Arjoon! "If one whose ways were ever so evil serve me alone, he soon becometh of a virtuous spirit, is as respectable as the just man, and obtaineth eternal happiness. Consider this world as a finite and joyless place, and serve me.

    Be of my mind, my servant, my adorer, and bow down before me. Unite thy soul unto me, make me thy asylum, and thou shalt go unto me." And again: "I am extremely dear to the wise man, and he is dear to me-I esteem the wise man even as myself, because his devout spirit dependeth upon me alone as his ultimate resource." Bhagvat Geeta, pp. 71 and 82.

    The rabbins have an extravagant saying, viz. "God is more concerned for the honour of the just man than for his own."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. If any man serve, me , etc.] Or is willing to be a servant of Christ, and to be esteemed as such; let him follow me ; as in the exercise of the graces of love, humility, patience, self-denial, and resignation of will to the will of God, and in the discharge of every duty, walking as he walked, so in a way of suffering; for as the master, so the servants, as the head, so the members, through many tribulations, must enter the kingdom; to which he encourages by the following things: and where I am ; in heaven, as he now was, as the Son of God; or where I shall be, as the Syriac and Persic versions render it, even as man, in the human nature, when raised from the dead: there shall also my servant be ; when he has done his work, and the place is prepared for him, and he for that, and where he shall ever abide; and as a further encouragement, he adds, if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honour ; by accepting his service, affording him his gracious presence here, and by giving him eternal glory hereafter, to which he has called him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-26 - In attendance upon holy
    ordinances, particularly the gospel passover the great desire of our souls should be to see Jesus; to see him a ours, to keep up communion with him, and derive grace from him. The calling of the Gentiles magnified the Redeemer. A corn of wheat yield no increase unless it is cast into the ground. Thus Christ might have possessed his heavenly glory alone, without becoming man. Or, after he had taken man's nature, he might have entered heaven alone, by his ow perfect righteousness, without suffering or death; but then no sinne of the human race could have been saved. The salvation of soul hitherto, and henceforward to the end of time, is owing to the dying of this Corn of wheat. Let us search whether Christ be in us the hope of glory; let us beg him to make us indifferent to the trifling concern of this life, that we may serve the Lord Jesus with a willing mind, an follow his holy example.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    26. Serve (diakonh). See on
    Matt. xx. 26; Mark ix. 35; 1 Pet. i. 12. Me (emoi). Notice the emphatic recurrence of the pronoun in this verse.

    My Father. Rev., rightly, the Father. "Very much of the exact force of St. John's record of the Lord's words appears to depend upon the different conceptions of the two forms under which the fatherhood of God is described. God is spoken of as 'the Father' and as 'my Father.' Generally it may be said that the former title expresses the original relation of God to being, and specially to humanity, in virtue of man's creation in the divine image; and the latter more particularly the relation of the Father to the Son incarnate, and so indirectly to man in virtue of the incarnation. The former suggests those thoughts which spring from the consideration of the absolute moral connection of man with God; the latter, those which spring from what is made known to us through revelation of the connection of the incarnate Son with God and with man. 'The Father' corresponds, under this aspect, with the group of ideas gathered up in the Lord's titles, 'the Son"'the Son of man;' and 'my Father' with those which are gathered up in the title 'the Son of God,' 'the Christ'" (Westcott).
