What if we all serve?

New Hope Reimagined, Part 2, John 13:1-15

By Rick Morris, September 17, 2023

The definition of synergy: the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.


John 13: 13-15; You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.

Washing feet means:

  1. I’m willing to others

  2. I’m being obedient to what Jesus of me

Levels of commitment within a local church

Mindset- “What can this church do for me?”

Mindset: “I did my religious duty for the week.”

Mindset: “I’ll help if there’s nobody else to do it.”

Mindset: “I will do whatever, whenever.”

Mark 10:45; For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

What level of commitment do you think Jesus expects from His followers?
