14th Anniversary Celebration Devotional: Day 6

Day 6: EXPERIENCE Ministry – The Dream
Team

 

For even the Son of Man came not to be
served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.
 

Mark 10:45 NLT

 

In the verse above, Jesus tells his
disciples he didn’t come to be served, but to serve others who needed him. He
didn’t come to have his feet washed, but to wash others’ feet. Sometimes we are
far too concerned with being served of how we can serve others. We need to be
sure we are focusing our heart on others’ needs instead of our own. The funny
thing is, when we focus on fulfilling others’ needs, we end up fulfilling our
own.

 

Prayer:

Praise God for sending His son, Jesus,
with the power to forgive all of our sins. Ask God for forgiveness for being
concerned with your own needs more than the needs others. Thank God for how serving
permeates the walls of C3. And thank Him for the people that serve others each
weekend at our church. Pray that our church family would continue to turn their
hearts outwards toward others and that they would serve with the same heart as
Jesus.
