From Series: "Finding My Place"
Matthew 20:26 says, “Whoever wants to become great must be a servant of others.” God says the way to Up is Down. The more you humble yourself to serve others the greater you become. That’s what Jesus did. Jesus said, “For even I didn’t come to be served but to serve others and to give my life as a ransom for many.” We become more like Jesus when we give ourselves away to help others.
Deep inside all of us there is a deep desire to make our lives count; to move beyond self-centered to significance. So, what are you going to do with your life? You really only have three alternatives. You can spend your life. You can waste your life. Or you can invest your life.
One paraphrase of Ephesians 2:10 puts it this way, “…long ago God planned that we should live this life helping others.” Would you do that in your church?
