Sermon Notes

In our culture today, serving others is only popular if one can actually do little of it and be largely recognized for it. “Servant-leadership” may be a popular phrase in some circles, but many more people want only the “leadership” part of that model, and they are quite unwilling to be committed to the “servant” part. In the local church, God has established two offices – the Elders/Pastors and the Deacons. Deacons are individuals named for the task of service, and these are meant to be godly examples of just this kind of person. All true Christians are servants of Christ and others, but deacons act as exemplary servants, and the benefits are enormous.
