A Time to Serve

April 2, 2012

Here are the sermon notes from April 1, 2012.

I.  Luke 19:28-40  A  Time to Celebrate

There are times in our life that we celebrate.  The times of celebration are fun.  What would life be like without times of celebration?  Yet not all of life is celebrating.

II.  Luke 19:41-44 A Time of Weeping

Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem.  He knew that the city would be destroyed within the century.  This saddened him.  There are times in our life when we want to cry.  Sometimes it is due to events in our own lives, and sometimes it is in response to what is happening in the lives of others.

III.  Luke 19:45-46  A Time for Action

Sometimes the circumstances of life motivate us to act.  This motivation may be caused by injustice, or sin, or compassion for the lost.  There are times that we might be angry, we should use that anger in the right way,  as motivation to right a wrong, not to do wrong.

IV.  John 13:1-17  A Time to Serve

As Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, it was a lesson for us in humility and service.  We are called to live a life of service.  We live to serve, and in serving, we live.

Conclusion:  We recognize that life is not all about the celebrations.  There are times to weep, there are times to act, and there are times to serve.
