To Serve for Jesus

To Serve with Jesus

To Serve Like Jesus

You were made for more than just believing and existing until you die. You were made to serve.

If Jesus offers a full and abundant life, then why does it feel as if words like burnout, exhaustion, anger, loneliness, unhappiness, and anxiety are winning the day? Something feels very off.

A full and abundant life results in purpose, meaning, fulfillment, joy, and happiness. What are we missing?

Discover the 5 Aspects of Serving Like Jesus

Attitude Icon

Aspect 1: Attitude

Jesus served us because He so loves us. Just as His attitude shaped how He served us, so too, does our attitude shape how we serve others.

Availability Icon

Aspect 2: Availability

Jesus made Himself available to us by leaving His throne in heaven to come down into this world.

Action Icon

Aspect 3: Action

It’s one thing to think and strategize about serving. But, to truly serve like Jesus, is a call to action that often requires losing so that others win.

Ability Icon

Aspect 4: Ability

You do not have the ability, like Jesus, to save people from their sins. However, you are uniquely wired and gifted.

Ambition Icon

Aspect 5: Ambition

Our ultimate ambition in life is to serve and glorify God. We do not serve to make our name great, but to make His name great.

How is Serving Challenge Different?

The opportunity to serve like Jesus will come with a significant cost. It will mean sacrificing, require losing, and be full of challenges. But, despite all the costs, when you serve like Jesus, you will find true fulfillment, joy, happiness, and great reward. So, will you become a servant of Jesus? Will you follow the Way of Jesus?
