Serve Outrageously!

Matthew 20:25-28

Jesus taught a new paradigm in Matthew 20:25-28. He isn’t rejecting greatness; He’s just redefining it. Brian Harbour said, “Greatness is expressed in service.” Service involves replacing selfishness with selflessness.

25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Jesus modeled the new paradigm through the washing of the disciples’ feet (John 13) and suffering and dying on the cross for our sins (Matthew 20:28; Philippians 2:7-8; Isaiah 53).

We are saved to serve. In fact, Reggie McNeal writes, “Most people grow the most through service.” So, our goal is to start what Dino Rizzo calls a “servolution.” Look for opportunities to serve inside and outside our walls. We want to be relevant in our community!
