8) Service That Is Sacrificial
.
SERVICE THAT IS SACRIFICIAL - 1 JOHN 3:16,17
 
    Love is the motivation for service for the Christian.  To serve for any other reason is bogus.  Jesus tells a parable in Luke 18 that illustrates this.  Luke 18:9-12.  Our text for today gives us an opposite and true viewpoint.

I.  Service requires servanthood - Matthew 20:25-28
          John 3:30 - He must increase, I must decrease - the way up is the way down.  Jesus is highly exalted because He emptied
          Himself for us.  I Corinthians 13:4-7

II. We serve, if only, for the audience of One - Matthew 6:3,4

III. Avoid service burn out - Mark 6:30-32
          Spiritually - 1 Samuel 30:6   Emotionally - Relaxation & Recreation
          Physically - Rest & Exercise

IV. We serve others with needs - 1 John 3:17; Matthew 25:40
