Yesterday evening in our Life Group (LG) we discussed about the subject of "servanthood", especially what it means to a Christian. Jesus came and He showed us that eventhough He is God, He served others without reservations. If Jesus came as a human to serve us and died for our sins, more so we should be serving others by His examples.
We also learnt that humility and servanthood are connected. If one is not humble than it may not be possible for him to serve others like Jesus did.
God gave us gifts, and we should use these gifts to serve others. "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen". 1 Peter 4:10-11
We are to serve others and bring praises to God, and not to glorify ourselves.
Put words into actions and serve!
