When we meet Christ, we are wired to serve. We have been gifted to make a contribution vs. constantly consuming. The eternal consequences of Christian service compel us to serve the church and the community. Jesus describes Himself as a servant and urges His followers to serve one another.
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12 - 14, Romans 12, Ephesians 4
The Apostle Paul (in 1 Cor. 13) challenges a couple of different paths where the believers have gotten sideways and are missing the "most excellent way" of living.
