Serving: our third purpose is to Serve God in the church and in the world. Jesus said; "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for the many" Mark 10:45
We human beings long to have significance, and meaning, and purpose to life. We find significance when we humbly become obedient, and serve the purposes of our loving God.
Each believing Christian has been given spiritual gifts that are designed to be exercised within the life of the church. At the same time, we, as God's people, are called by God to exercse those spiritual gifts in our every day life- fmaily, friends, work, school. "Jesus said; 'All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20). We fulfill that Great Commission when we share our faith wtih others and serve them.
