I. Why Serve?

– According to Jesus, serving is the greatest life force.

– Down is Up

II. Why aren’t we servants?

– We are not taught to serve.

– Performance Identity

– Selfish Ambition (Php 2:3-7)

– We’re afraid that if we serve, we will lose.

– Serving is not worth it. (Mk 10:29-30)

– We don’t see the larger purpose of our lives

III.  The key to serving: Look out

– The Way of Jesus:  Mt 9:36, 14:14,15:32  Luke 7:13, 15:20. 19:5, 21:1, 22:61. John 1:42

– Judged by our service (not our gifts, our resources, our intelligence)

Two parables: Talents, sheep and goats Matthew 25:

Forasmuch as you have done it do the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me. – Jesus


Where has my selfish ambition kept me away from serving?

Where is God asking me to look out?

Who in my life are “the least of these?”
