Service – Working For God

Attitude of the Servant:

  • Humble
    • “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” – John 13: 14-15
  • Joyful
    • Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” – Psalms 100: 2
  • Loyal
