Accelerate – Serve (Part 3)

Text: Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”

Galatians 5:13 “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”

1. Helps To Fill the Gaps

  • Ecclesiastes 9:10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”
  • Matthew 9:37-38 “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
  • Matthew 25:40 “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”

2. Feeds Your Soul

  • John 4:34 “Jesus said to them. “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
  • “When all culture says, fill yourself, God tells us to fill others! God didn’t create us to be takers. He created us to be givers.” -Craig Groeschel, Divine Directions
  • “When we move from the consumer mentality to the contributor mentality it changes EVERYTHING!

3. Connects You To God and Others

  • Matthew 20:28 “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.”
  • John 15:8 “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
  • 2 Timothy 1:6 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”
