Improving Your Serve

Improving Your Serve

Luke 22:42

Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

Three Mottos to Improve Your Service for The Lord

Choose to Lose Motto

“Not my will, but Thine, be done”

First we must

Choose to Lose to God

Let God take over your life

Then we must

Choose to Lose to Self

Let your want for personal recognition fade away

Lastly, we must

Lose the image of perfection

Not my way, nor the world’s way, but God’s way

Losing to God, losing to self, and losing the image of perfection are essential to becoming a better servant of God

He must increase but I must decrease – John 3:30

No Pride Motto

This motto is rooted in humility

We must never think we are superior to others

1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. – Romans 12:1-5

I Will Not Quite Motto

Paul modeled this for us

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 3:14

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith – II Timothy 4:7

Servant leaders do not quit because of a loss or suffering, they press on!

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. – Deuteronomy 6:5

37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38This is the first and great commandment.
39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. – Matthew 22:37-39

29Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. – Matthew 12:29-30
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. – Luke 10:27
