                                       IT’S TIME TO SERVE

  1. EVERYBODY DOESN’T NEED TO KNOW YOUR CALLING AND GODS PLAN RIGHT OFF THE BAT

 

MATT 20:26-28

Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for the many who are held hostage.”

SERVANT LEADERSHIP IS CONTENT BEING HIDDEN

IF RECOGNITION IS YOUR MOTIVATION, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH INSPIRATION 

  1. CHOOSE TO SERVE EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE IT BECAUSE GOD IS THERE BACKING YOU UP 

 

A SERVANT FUNCTIONS FAITHFULLY, NOT JUST BASED ON THERE FEELINGS AT THE TIME

 

1 COR. 15:58

58 With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.

 

HEB. 13.5

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU 

  1. YOUR CALLED BEFORE YOU’RE PLACED IN POSITION 

 

Gal. 1:15

when I was still in my mother’s womb he chose and called me out of sheer generosity!

  1. IN EVERY SEASON THERE IS A TIME TO SERVE 

  ATTITUDE REFLECTS LEADERSHIP

  1. WHEN YOU SERVE YOU BECOME AN ANSWER TO A PROBLEM 

Genesis 41.14

Pharaoh at once sent for Joseph, they brought him on the run from the jail cell. He cut his hair, out on clean clothes, and came to pharaoh

  1. TRUST THE PROCESS WHEN IT COMES TO SERVING 

 

PROVERBS 3:5-8

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;

he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.

Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!

OBSTACLES turn into OPPORTUNITIES

  1. YOU CANT SERVE TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL UNTIL YOU LEARN TO FORGIVE 

Manasseh – God made me forget

1 PETER 4:7-11

7-11 Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help. That way, God’s bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he’ll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything
