SERVANTHOOD SERMON OUTLINES

by Stan Coffey

INTRODUCTION: Mark's gospel, the shortest one, has as its purpose to present the Lord Jesus as the suffering servant. The key verse is Mark l10:45, ''For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'' Mark's view of the Lord Jesus as a suffering servant accounts for the absence of many of Jesus' teachings in his...

Introduction: Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's, who died a few years, became a familiar sight to millions in his company's television commercials. I used to refer to him as Uncle Dave. He wasn't my uncle, but I hoped that if he ever heard about my referring to him that way he might remember me in his will. He didn't. I guess I can just call him plain old Dave...

I read about a woman who telephoned a friend and asked how she was feeling. ''Terrible,'' came the reply ''my head's splitting and my back and legs are killing me. The house is a mess, and the kids are simply driving me crazy.'' The caller said, ''Listen, go and lie down, I'll come over right away and cook lunch for you, clean up the house, and take care of the children while you...

God is looking for servants this morning! Throughout time and history, God has a select group of people He works very closely with. This group is referred to over and over in the Scriptures. They are called His bond servants. Today is a time we must ask ourselves the question, ''Am I a good and faithful bondservant...

INTRODUCTION: In his discourse with the disciples, Jesus speaks to them in a parable. In the first part of the chapter they had questioned Him concerning the coming destruction of the temple, the sign of His return and the end of the world. In (vv. 4-44) He details the events of the Tribulation period, a time so severe that in (vs. 22), He states...

DEVELOPING A SERVANT'S SPIRIT MEANS: ADOPTING A NEW STANDARD. Note: Jesus is to become our new standard for life. We are to live and serve as He did. Jn. 13:14-15 ''Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.'' (15) ''I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for...

There is no doubt about God's call on our lives for service. To be a Christian brings a certain level of responsibility to serve. What is this call to service? What is it that God is asking from us? What are the expectations of servanthood? Sometimes our focus as Christians can become misplaced while it is vitally important that...

Introduction: Jesus had a great synonym for greatness - servant. In Mark 10:43-45 he said, ''Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not to be served.'' When you responded to God's vision for your life, seeking to fulfill the call that He burned in your...

We are coming to the last days of the Lord before His death on the Cross, and His resurrection. He is making His way to Jerusalem, and He has just given the disciples a parable about the Kingdom of Heaven in relation to the workers in the vineyard. If you will remember from last week, Jesus said that some people get saved early in life, and they serve the Lord faithfully for many...

We briefly talked about the matter of these servant songs last Wednesday night in our study and pointed out the fact that ultimately all of these servant songs find their fulfillment in the Lord Jesus Christ. That's certainly the way the New Testament views it. There are many New Testament passages which refer these servant...
