Are You Ready To Serve? | The Rev. Robert A. Jacobs, Deacon

Are You Ready To Serve? | The Rev. Robert A. Jacobs, Deacon

We are called to a life of Servanthood….

…Being a Christian is not about being better than someone else, having a more superior position, nor is it about having power over someone else. Jesus said, “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whomever wants to be first must be slave of all.” (Mark 10:43-44)

Following Jesus we are led into a life of serving others, no matter who we are.  It is a special type of service. The type of service Jesus is encouraging us to live out is one of really serving others, so they benefit….

Being a Christian is about serving others and serving them in the right way, which is with love.

And then he launches into an appreciation for the syncopated dance moves of groups like the Temptations; how smoothly they worked together, and how remarkable it was that they produced such beautiful vocals using just one microphone.
