Week 3 – Serving

1. Before the world began, God planned great things for you to do when you became a follower of Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-10)
2. We are called to be servants. Not just to serve. It’s a heart thing. We don’t just do serving, we are servants!
3. If it was good enough for Jesus to serve, it’s good enough for us! (John 13 – Jesus washes the discples feet, Philippians 2:6-9 – Gave up His life for us). Our attitude should be the same.
