  3. I am commanded to serve others     (Matthew 20:26-28)
  4. My church needs my service     (1 Corinthians 12:27)
  5. Serving others gives meaning to life     (Mark 8:35)
  6. I will be held accountable for my service     (Romans 14:12)
  7. I will be rewarded for my service     (2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 22:12)


Reflection Questions:

  1. How am I using my gifts to serve others?
  2. If I am not serving others, why is that?
  3. Am I serving others out of love for God, or am I motivated by other reasons?
