The "Difference" Is Identity

Passage: Matthew 20:25-28

Speaker: Drew Shofner

Identity. This is the difference. If we know our identity is in Christ and accept that identity, service follows. All are invited but not all accept the invitation. Acceptance of our identity becomes evident through our obedience. In the same way Christ was obedient and was sent to serve we are also to be obedient as we are sent to serve. More than this, when we know and accept our identity, we choose to be obedient and we serve with passion and purpose. God gives us all gifts to be used in service. We show Christ to others when our service is seen by those around us. We can serve at home, at work, at church and in our communities. Like Daniel (Read Daniel 6), God has given us direction to serve him as well as an inheritance through him. This isn’t just to be passed on to the next generation, it is to be shared now through service and living evidence of our identity.
