Fresh Start Series (Week 9) - Serving

Key Scripture (Matthew 20:28 AMPC):

“...the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve...”

Serving is simply giving of yourself to make life better for someone else. If we want to be like Jesus, serving will be a way of life for us. Authentic, Christ-like serving starts in the heart. It’s an attitude and a perspective on life that says, “What can I do to make a difference for someone else?”

Key Scripture (1 Peter 4:10 TLB):

“God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessing.”

We’ve each been given unique gifts and talents. God hand-crafted you and made you exactly how He wanted you. It wasn’t just so that you could benefit from your gifts. The Bible tells us that the purpose of those gifts and talents is to serve others and build the Body of Christ.

Key Scripture (Proverbs 11:25 NIV):

“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” 

Conclusion

Make a decision to be someone who is generous with your time, energy and resources when it comes to serving in God’s House. Jump in, get involved and start serving with passion. As you do, the Bible tells us that you’ll experience God’s blessings in your life.
