A big part of following Jesus is learning to serve others the way Jesus did. He said, “whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:43-45).
Jesus also commands us to be motivated by love in all we do; first for God then for one another. At True North, we strive to do just that. As we invite people to engage in all the activity of being a church; we emphasize that love for God and one another is the motive. If obligation is what drives us, we quickly burn out. If we serve out of selfish ambition, we are no longer following Jesus.
In his “Exploring Our Foundations” sermon series, Pastor Scott describes what we mean by Serving In Love.
