I Will SERIES
10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10
28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life — a ransom for many.

WHY SHOULD WE SERVE OTHERS?
I. WE WERE CREATED FOR SERVICE
10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
II. IT PROVES THAT I BELONG TO CHRIST
4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death in relation to the law through the crucified body of the Messiah, so that you may belong to another — to Him who was raised from the dead — that we may bear fruit for God.
III. SERVING OTHERS IS THE WAY TO SERVE GOD
23 Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ.
40 And the King will answer them, I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.
IV. I OWE GOD EVERYTHING
1 Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship.
V. IT’S THE BEST USE OF MY LIFE
1 Corinthians 15:58
58 Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lords work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
VI. IT MAKES LIFE MEANINGFUL
35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me and the gospel will save it.
VII. IT WILL BE REWARDED FOR ETERNITY
26 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there My servant also will be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
21 His master said to him, Well done, good and faithful slave! You were faithful over a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Share your masters joy!
