Service: 2 Cor. 4:5

2 Corinthians 4:5  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
J esus first
O thers next
Y ourself last
Our verse follows this principle. Christ Jesus the Lord was who the Apostle and his helpers preached. This was of paramount importance. The Apostle was then a servant for his brethren. This should be our motto too, to preach Christ and Him crucified, and to serve others as they have need. Too often we think about ourselves and how tired we are, or that we were left out of the plans for the young people, or that so-and-so always gets to go someplace and I can’t ever go! Jesus wants your life given to Him - in service. How about it?
