Even though Jesus is God, he did not come to earth expecting to be waited on like a king. Instead, He said, “I have not come to be served but to serve and to give my life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:29). However, those who do choose to serve Him will be honored by the Father (John 12:26). In this message, Dr. Stanley talks about what motivates a person to serve God, including: - A gratitude for salvation - A conviction of being called and commanded to serve - A vision for God’s great purpose - A desire to invest his life in things that have eternal value Dr. Stanley then concludes his message with four requirements for someone to have a passion to serve God. Learn to follow Jesus’ example of perfect service to the Father and experience the blessings of glorifying the King of Kings.
