In today’s sermon, Pastor Jamie talks about discipleship. Being followers of Christ makes us servants as we follow his example. Why do we serve? Everything in our world was created with a purpose. The pews, microphone, everything serves a purpose and would probably be useless or break if we tried to use it for something it wasn’t created for. We were created by God with the purpose of doing good works. We find great joy in serving God and serving others in his name.

Scripture: 1 Peter 4:7-11

7 The end of everything has come. Therefore, be self-controlled and clearheaded so you can pray. 8 Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins. 9 Open your homes to each other without complaining. 10 And serve each other according to the gift each person has received, as good managers of God’s diverse gifts. 11 Whoever speaks should do so as those who speak God’s word. Whoever serves should do so from the strength that God furnishes. Do this so that in everything God may be honored through Jesus Christ. To him be honor and power forever and always. Amen.
