This Sunday we continue with this current teaching series titled, “Living a Supersize Life.” My guess is that we want to live large. We want to experience all the Lord has for us. We do not want to be short-changed in any way.
There are a variety of people in the Bible who teach us about the life of a servant, but no one is better than the apostle Paul. From Acts 20:17-35 (our text for this Sunday), Paul retells the leaders of the Church at Ephesus how he lived a model life while starting a church in their town. Did he make mistakes? Did he stumble? I can only imagine. But a servant is not someone who is perfect, but rather a person who reflects Someone who is!
Here might be the best definition of a true servant spoken by John Wesley, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.
Imagine what would happen if we practiced that everyday - like I believe Paul did while serving in Ephesus. This Sunday we will explore the way Paul served the Lord and in doing so, we discover the secret of a life well lived.
You are deeply loved!
