But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.
When He had washed their feet and put on His outer garments and resumed His place, He said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.”
Jesus came to serve, not be served. He showed us how to serve others by washing the feet of His disciples. Jesus tells us to use our time and talents to serve others.
- We serve others because He served us first. When we serve others, it brings glory to God.
- What talents has God given you? How can you use them to serve others?
- What are ways you can use your time to serve others both intentionally, and as you go?
- There are over 50 “one another” commands. How can you practice these “one another’s” today?
How can I give my time and talents in service to 121?

What gifts and abilities does God give to believers?
We find the spiritual gifts listed in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, 1 Peter 4, and Ephesians 4. Every Christian has been given at least one of these gifts to build up the body of Christ. We are to use the gifts God gives us to glorify Him, serve others, and build up His Church.
