PART 8. AUTHORITY – SERVING OTHERS

 

 

“Jesus called His twelve disciples to Him and gave them authority….”  Matthew 10:1 (NLT)

 

“…the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve….”  Mark 10:45 (NIV)

 

Jesus said, “Peace be with you!  As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.”  John 20:21 (NIV)

 

“…serve one another in love.”  Galatians 5:13 (NIV)

 

 

How do I live out my authority to serve others?

 

I lay aside ____________________________________.

 

“Jesus said, I came down from heaven to do what God wants me to do, not what I want to do.”  John 6:38 (NCV)

 

 

I get personally ________________________ with others.

 

Jesus knew that the Father had given Him authority over everything….  So He got up from the table, took off His robe, wrapped a towel around His waist, and poured water into a basin.  Then He began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel He had around Him.  …(Jesus said) “I have given you an example to follow.  Do as I have done to you.”  John 13:3-5,15 (NIV)

 

 

I learn to ______________________________ as Jesus did.

 

“When (Jesus) saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”  Matthew 9:36 (NIV)

 

 

I _________________________ love for Jesus by living like Jesus.

 

“The greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.”  Luke 22:26 (NIV)

 

 

“Let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us.  We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish.  He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy He knew would be His afterward.” Hebrews 12:1-2 (NLT)
