Beware of Serving Jesus

Beware of serving Jesus. “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve” (Mark 10:45). Own your helplessness. – John Piper and Mark…
I read this on my twitter this afternoon and it really made me think about how we approach our service in the church and the Kingdom of God. I think for many we serve and underneath our motive is the idea that we are ‘paying’ back Jesus for what He did for us on the Cross. John Piper tweets (that was funny just typing it) that we need to own our helplessness. In other words, understand you are helpless in your efforts to become righteous through serving. Only Christ and His service has made us righteous. We serve in the Kingdom out of Love, not duty, not debt.
