Make Me A Servant: Lessons on Service

Key Verses

“But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matt. 20:26-28).

Purpose and Aim of the Theme

The title of our theme for 2022 is taken from the opening words of the beautiful hymn, “Servant’s Song”—

“Make me a servant, just like Your Son.” The theme focuses on how we as disciples of Christ are learning to serve, even as he came to serve (Matt. 20:28).

Sermons on the Theme

Each month we will share a lesson on the theme. We pray that these lessons will help us as we follow Jesus, the Lord’s Servant and our Master. May we use these opportunities to invite others to learn about the joy of serving the Lord and our fellow man. Please mark the dates.
