serve 101

Notes about being a servant

What makes the difference between good and poor restaurants, hotels, and places of business? The service!

Serving separates the professing from the practicing

My opinion of what qualifies a five star rating
  • A place that pays attention to the details
    • the blessing is in the details
  • A place that acknowledges me as a individual
    • I am not just a number or a reservation
  • A place that produces what is promised  
    • If you say you have the worlds best cup of coffee, it better be good!
A Christ follower is called to serve others

What does it mean to "Serve the Lord?"
I believe serving the Lord is broken down in two ways:

1. Worshiping Him
  •  John 4:24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth."
    • Spirit - The highest form of worship is a heart given to G-d. A life given to Him. A life dedicated to Him.(1 Samuel 12:24 Only fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart.) 
    • Truth - Following His word as a rule for our life. Extremely obedient
  • We serve the Lord through living a life dedicated to Him and following His word
2. Work
  • Romans 12:11 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.
    • Our attitude should be Christ attitude when it comes to serving
    • Philippians 2:1-5
    • His DNA was whatever, whenever, to whomever
  • We are not saved by our works, we work because we are saved! 
 Our worship fuels our work.

Be a servant of the Lord and worship Him and work for Him

Just got back from Bogota, Colombia. We spent 7 days working with great Missionaries, Michael and Nomi Lawrence. Our team poured a concert floor to expand a school. And MAN! it was tough. Here are a few pics.
