Servanthood: Why is it so hard, and what can we do about it?
March 12, 2002

Primary Scripture: Romans 12:1-8

Read Romans 12:1-8.

Does anyone find this easy? Why is it hard? Share why you find it difficult to be a servant.

What can we do about it?

Read Mark 8:34.

What does it mean to take up your cross? How does this fit in with Philippians 2 ("he made himself nothing")?

Read James 4:7 and 1 Peter 5:5-6.

What is the key word here? Who are we called to submit to? Why is it okay to submit? Why is it so hard?

Read Matthew 25:34-40.

How can we see people as Jesus saw them? (How can we be sensitive to the needs of others?)

Read Hebrews 13:20-21.

What does the word equip indicate? How / with what does God equip us?

  • Sensitivity
  • Willingness
  • Ability

Final encouragement: Read 1 Peter 4:10-11.
