God Wants ALL of ME:  My SERVICE (Romans 12:3-8)

God saves us to live for Him. He commands us to yield our bodies to Him, and to be renewing our minds for Him. He does so that we might fully live for Him, serving Him by serving others. God desires for us to serve Him with our time, effort, energy, and abilities. As God is the Lord of our bodies and our minds, He becomes the Lord of all that we do. A major part of that is serving other believers with one or more spiritual abilities that God gives for that very reason.  (This is the third of a four-part series on Romans 12.)

Jesus Helps Us See True Lordship and Eager Service (Luke 17:7-10)

Jesus explains how priority and quantity both relate to true Lordship. Jesus asks two hard-hitting rhetorical questions. The first question reveals one’s true lord based on the priority given the Lord. The second question reveals our true or false view of Lordship based upon our attitude towards our service, and how we measure it. Do we serve eagerly or perform the minimum?

Your Works Make a Difference (1 Cor 15:58)

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Do you ever wonder if serving God makes any difference? When you look at the results of your sometimes exhausting efforts, you see nothing come of them? God addresses this very directly in 1 Corinthians 15:58: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

We take some time in this message to explain this verse in detail, and to encourage you that your works DO make a difference.
