WHY DO WE SERVE?
The Lord demonstrated service when He served up His life on a Cross to free us to start living again. Christian service is not self-serving, attending to someone’s needs for the sake of what you will get out of it. Christian service is defined not by the needs of the one serving but the needs of the one being served.
