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...

by Jerry Vines

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...

I remember dating Kristal - barely. It's not that our dating relationship was not memorable or special but it was just brief. There was not a lot of dating that took place. Most of our time was spent apart - she lived in Atlanta and I lived here in Valdosta. We went on our first date the very first weekend of November in...

After the Olympics, glory seems to be on my mind. All the athletes strive for glory by winning a gold, silver or bronze medal. The best athletic performance in the world makes these winners role models in their home countries, it makes them wealthy through advertising endorsements and it makes them celebrities in...

by George H. Morrison

On one occasion our Lord announced, "I am among you as one who serveth." That was the summation of His ministry. The word for serveth which St. John gives us is a word of very large and liberal meaning. It includes services of every kind, however high or exalted they may be. But when St. Paul says of that same...

by John McKain

The Greek word translated "good" could better be translated "noble," "admirable," or "excellent." It was used in 1 Tim. 3:1 to speak of the work of ministry, land here it is used to identify the kind of man God wants in ministry."Minister" is the translation of the Greek word diakonos from which we get the...

by Jeff Schreve

If you have your Bible, turn to 2nd Timothy chapter 2. You know, there's a special name for 2nd Timothy and for 1st Timothy and for Titus. Those three letters that Paul wrote, two to Timothy, one to Titus, they're called the Pastoral Epistles. They were written from Paul, the great apostle, to younger guys, who were pastors of...

Today I am continuing our Series Our House. We will be talking about a few of the core values of Our Church House. Every House has a Culture, what is acceptable and not acceptable in the house. Today I want to begin in talking about Our House - Mission. What do you think of when I say Mission? For some of us we think of...

I had a wreck on Wednesday night. Not a car wreck or anything like that. It happened in our Community Group. We are doing a study on the gospel centered life. We were discussing how we need to have a correct awareness of God's holiness and our sinfulness, and when we do it makes the cross much bigger. As we were...

As we continue looking at the Know Ye Not's of the New Testament, I want us to look at the second that is found in Romans 6. In our last study we looked at Romans 6:3 where Paul asks, "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?" Paul asks once again in...
