Service: Week 3 - Devotion 2

Think about this quote:

"The Christian who desires to be great and first in the kingdom is the one who is willing to serve in the hard place, the uncomfortable place, the lonely place, the demanding place, the place where he is not appreciated and may even be persecuted . . . He is willing to work for excellence without becoming proud, to withstand criticism without becoming bitter, to be misjudged without becoming defensive, and to withstand suffering without succumbing to self-pity." - John MacArthur


Think about this: 

  • Why is serving sometimes hard? 

  • Do you ever struggle with any of these things MacArthur mentioned? How do they take away from the benefits of serving others in Christ’s name?
