There seems to be a trend lately, and that trend is a self-serving Christianity. It’s this idea that everything is about us (those who are already Christians). I think I am just as guilty of this as anyone! I’m sure we’ve all heard and done “Church Shopping” and so often we hear that a couple didn’t choose a certain church because it didn’t cater to them in a certain way. That’s not why we’re here though! We’re here to serve others, to be Christlike.
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28
Jesus came not to be served, but to serve others, to give Hise life for many. We’re called to be like Christ, therefore our focus shouldn’t be on us but should be on serving others. Our focus should be outward instead of inward. I guess the better question to ask when looking for a church home is, 1. Do they preach the Bible? and 2. Is their main focus on reaching the lost? Let’s not miss an opportunity to serve someone else today.
