1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1 – 2)
As we conclude our consideration of the Discipline of Service today let’s focus on application. During His time on earth, service was central to Jesus. In Matthew 23:11 He said, “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant”. Our passage today instructs us to follow His example. I am convinced that the world really needs this!
Please prayerfully read the passage above and consider the suggestions below.
- Prayerfully create a Service Action Plan (SAP) for the next few days/weeks.
- Consider what Jesus would do in response to the prevailing atmosphere of uncertainty, fear and pain.
- Be specific in your SAP about who you are going to serve and the service you will perform.
- If you can share your plan without betraying any confidences, please do so to encourage others.
