Matthew 20:28 says, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (NLT). Think about this verse more closely for a moment. Jesus, the only one worthy of worship, cast that right aside and inside chose to devote His life to others. He focused on serving others to the point of evening washing His disciple’s feet!
If Jesus was willing to go to such great lengths to serve, what is holding you back? As a church, we need to join together to mobilize our efforts to relieve the burden of others. We must utilize our God-given gifts as the body of Christ to change the world for the Gospel. This is more than possible when we serve on a team at church. God desires for us to join in His work of reaching into people’s hearts and spreading the Gospel around the world.
There are a variety of ministries available for you to join. Reach out to your pastor and together find the best place you can express your unique talents. Remember, when you serve others, you emulate Christ and join in His redemptive work. You can make an impact on the world for the cause of the Gospel. Are you ready to walk that path today?
