Title: Real Love…Serves
Series: Real Love
Author: Randy Tomko

What is it that you and I do with our lives? Do we follow after the example of Jesus?

Are we caught with positions of power and influence, or do we possess humility, seeking first to serve others rather than be served?

Do we angle to see ourselves lifted high, rather than pointing to the One who truly deserves that honor?

Jesus taught about serving.

Jesus demonstrated serving.

Jesus exhorted His followers to do likewise.

24 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

Luke 22:24-27 (NIV)
