Why Serve?

 

 

 

Why should I serve in the church? 

Simply put, the answer is: To become a Biblical Christian. Jesus Christ came to serve. “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45). Serving is one of the fundamental ways to define the ministry of Jesus. In fact, the word ministry literally means to serve. The Greek noun diakonia is most often translated as either ministry or service. It follows that if serving others is the very definition of ministry, and specifically the ministry of Jesus, then we who take the name Christian should participate in the life of service that our Master Jesus did.
