Serve the World Through Jesus Christ
- Now playing
- Sermon Notes
This is the third message on our church’s vision statement. The statement comes from the Great Commission in Matthew 28 and the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39. The vision statement says we will “Love God, Love Others and Serve The World Through Jesus Christ.” Loving God will result in loving other people and serving them.
Jesus uses a parable in Matthew 25 to highlight the call to serve others. A man is going on a journey and gives each of his servants some money to manage while he is away. The first servant receives 5 talents, the second servant 2 talents and the third receives 1 talent. Upon the master’s return the first two servants each doubled their masters money. The third servant put the money in a hole in the ground. He didn’t even attempt to invest it for his master.
What are you doing with all that God entrusts to you? How do you use your time, your abilities and spiritual gifts and manage the finances God has put on loan to you? God will use you to impact the lives of hurting, broken and discourage people. The Lord will use you to build up other Christians in your church and meet needs. Take a step of faith to serve someone this week.
