Purpose: Jesus has made it possible for us to live lives for the will of God, characterised by love, service and hospitality – all for God’s glory.
From death to life (1 – 6)
In Jesus we have died to our old way of life – and now we are to live for the will of God.
Saved to serve (7 – 11)
We have been saved to serve. Jesus has served us and now our lives are characterised by love, service and hospitality – all for God’s glory.
Gifts are discovered in service.
We should be willing to serve anyone God brings into our lives with whatever needs doing, whenever it is needed, and wherever it leads us. “So that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.”
