                                                                                                                           But I’m All About Me                                                                                                                             Get Off Your “But”

Mark 9:35, “Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, ‘Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.’”                                                                        
Mark 10:43, 45, “Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,  45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”   

1. According to Jesus, the key to the life we are called to live is _______________________________.

John 13:4-5, “…so He got up from the meal, took off His outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around His waist. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.”    

2.  In ancient times doing anything to someone’s feet was considered to be the most ________________________.

3. Did you notice? No one apparently offered to _____________ Jesus’ feet.

John 13:12-15, “When He had finished washing their feet, He put on His clothes and returned to His place. ‘Do you understand what I have done for you?’ He asked them. ‘You call Me “Teacher” and “Lord,” and rightly so, for that is what I am.  Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”

4. What serving does for your life:   
    a. It’s what gets you and keeps you in ____________________.
    b. Making a difference matters and ______________  is how you make a difference.
    c. It is the only way you can find and fulfill your individual __________________________________. 
    d. The _____________ to which you serve others often determines the ________________ to which you are served yourself
