ALL IN: Serving instead of Sitting
1 Corinthian 9:22-23
I. Service should naturally flow out of worship. Matt. 4:10 Then Jesus told him, "Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him."
II. Jesus exemplified a life of service. Matt. 20:28 "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
III. God defines greatness in terms of serving. Matt. 23:11 "The greatest among you will be your servant."
IV. God will personally honor those who serve. Matt. 25:21 "His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant!
V. Our reward in heaven will directly relate to our service to others here. Matt. 25:40 "...whatever you did for one of the least of these... you did for me.'
