Jesus said he "did not come to be served, but to serve." And he calls us as his followers to the same lifestyle and attitude of service. But how do we do that? In a world that values power and ease, we need some help in reorienting our hearts as well as our schedules. These six sessions look at key character traits taught and modeled by Jesus that are essential to a life of service in the steps of the Ultimate Servant.
We found a few of these books in a bargain book store-thought it would be something we could use economically for our small group study. We were glad to be able to order additional copies from CBS. As it turned out, the group has enjoyed the study-we are all at different levels in our christian journey and it works for everyone. The topic serving has a lot of relevance in our church and everyday life.
My small group recently completed a study on this series. I found this book and the discussions it created within our group to be truly enlightening and uplifting. The sessions are very thought-provoking and challenge you to find opportunities to serve in everyday life. By the end of the series, you will see service opportunities everywhere. I highly recommend doing a service project as suggested in the book. My small group's project was truly a life-changing experience for me and something that I'll remember for the rest of my life.This is an amazing resource for small groups and I'd recommend it to any group leader.
