To be humble in heart . . . is to be submissive to the core.  It involves being more interested in serving the needs of others than in having one’s own needs met.

From Philippians 2:3-4:  “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.  Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.”

Making a Difference

From 1 Corinthians 1:8-9:  “He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful; by Him you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

From 1 Peter 4:8-10:  “ Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins.  Be hospitable to one another without complaining.  Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.”

Martin Luther Quote

A Christian is a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none.  A Christian is a perfectly dutiful servant of all, subject to all.

From 1 Corinthians 9:19:  “For though I am free with respect to all, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I might win more of them.”

Follow His Example

From John 13:14-15:  “So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.  For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.”

Jesus, our Lord and Savior, teaches us

Sharing the love from the Holy Father

Knowing God has given to Him all things

Sharing faithful witness, from the Father

 

Christ, the living God, guides our faithful steps

Presenting endless chances to serve God

Facing our lives, filled with countless hurdles

Serving one another, as blessed by God

 

Jesus, Son of David, shares acts of Grace

Washing apostles’ feet, blessing the Lord

Teaching through His loving act of service

Telling all, humbling serve our righteous Lord

 

Christ, Lamb of God, transforming life on earth

Faithfully following our Lord Jesus

Seeking, trusting, and praying in His name

Glorifying each day, serving through Jesus

From the words of American author, John Eldredge:  “Teach a man a rule and you help him solve a problem; teach a man to walk with God and you help him solve the rest of his life.”
