Delivered On: June 30, 2024


Memorize and Reflect

Mark 10:45
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Prayer Direction

Read: Philippians 2:3-11. Thank Jesus for His unfathomed humility and great love for you! Invite Him to show you practical ways to serve those closest to your life and the church. Ask Him to show you simple steps you can take to live out His calling for you in these areas.

“Live It!” Challenge

Send Me Lord – Go to the Shoreline website and identify different serving opportunities that are available and that might interest you. Pray and ask God where He would want you to serve. Connect with Shoreline via the “I’m Interested!” link.

Bonus: If you have never taken a spiritual gifts assessment, go to the Shoreline website and take the online assessment. If you would like to meet with a leader, check the block and do so.

Small Group Discussion

  1. What is one volunteer service experience you have had in your life and what made you commit to serving in that role/event?

  2. Read: Matthew 20:20-28. What was James, John, and their mother’s request and motivation? How did Jesus correct their way of thinking?

  3. What are examples in life when we expect to be served? How might Jesus’ teaching on this cause us to rethink these expectations?

  4. Read: John 13:1-17. What cultural norm did Jesus blow out of the water by willingly washing His disciples' feet? What does that say about Jesus' love for others and His willingness to serve them practically?

  5. What might be some examples of “foot washing” in our culture today?

  6. Read: 1 Peter 4:10-11. What do we learn from this passage? What are your spiritual gifts, and how are you currently serving the church with those gifts?

  7. As you reflect on this week’s message, how might you serve others more intentionally? Be specific and ask your group to pray for you as you take the steps to do so.
