Be Like a Servant
24 Later, the apostles began to argue about which one of them was the most important. 25 But Jesus said to them, “The kings of the world rule over their people, and those who have authority over others want to be called ‘the great providers for the people.’ 26 But you must not be like that. The one with the most authority among you should act as if he is the least important. The one who leads should be like one who serves.27 Who is more important: the one serving or the one sitting at the table being served? Everyone thinks it’s the one being served, right? But I have been with you as the one who serves.
For 2019 as a church and as individuals, let's establish a habit that will continue through the year. When we SERVE others we SERVE Jesus!

Discovering Jesus. Valuing People. Building Community
GOD WITH US– not in heaven, not out of touch or out of reach, not a phantom, not a shadow, not a legend or a myth; God with us in grace, in truth, in mercy; God with us in human flesh, touchable, seeable, knowable.
LOVE breathing, love giving, love caring, love dying. Walking where we walk, crying our tears, knowing our pain, feeling our grief, bearing our sorrows.
GOD WITH US—in the manger, in the temple, on the road, by the well, in the boat, upon the hillside, in the home, at the table, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, comforting those who mourn, speaking to the multitude and seeking out the individual; with arms extended, with words that beckon, with a voice that calls, ‘Come unto Me.”
GOD WITH US—to believe in, to follow, to proclaim, to seek, to worship, to love, to cherish forever!
