SERVINGThe way you are

  • YOU ARE AWARE OF JESUS WHEN YOU ARE HELPING OTHERS
  • FOR YOU, SERVING IS ALL ABOUT WORSHIP
  • YOU WONDER WHY PEOPLE WANT TO SPEND SO MUCH TIME SINGING WHEN THEY COULD BE SERVING PEOPLE
  • YOU SEE SERVICE AS PROPHETIC ACTION
  • YOU FIND REAL JOY IN SERVING
  • SEEING PEOPLE IN NEED STIRS UP A DESIRE TO SEE HEALING GIFTS
  • LET YOUR KINGDOM COME ON EARTH IS A PRAYER WITH REAL MEANING FOR YOU

Hearing from God

With difficulty – you are happy to be told what the issues are and get on with implementing them

Biblical Example

Dorcas in the Book of Acts

Other Example

MOTHER THERESA

Build

  • Get plugged into a COMMUNITY.
  • Look for glimpses of God’s presence in the people you serve, and in the execution of your tasks.
  • Prepare to serve first by praying so your service is genuinely spiritual service.

Beware

  • Be careful not to resent other people who don’t serve as much as you do.
  • Remember that God loves you not because you are so faithful in serving him, but
  • Because you are his CHILD.
  • Don’t confuse serving with earning God’s love.

Balance

  • Balance your service with small group and community life.
  • Learn to receive love even when you’re not being productive.
  • Practice expressing love through WORDS as well as actions.
