Be You

Service is the path that leads to your true self.

John 12:26

“Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be.”

Do you have a way of life that is changing you for the better?

Such should be the Christian path.

Being a Christian involves far more than beliefs. It’s taking part in the same transformative journey Jesus took.

Jesus never asked us to worship him or simply believe in him…but to follow him.

That’s where the transformation occurs…in the following.

Jesus lived his life in the service of others.

In order to follow him…we must also live our lives in the service of others.

That will mean letting go of self-centered, egocentric desires and using our gifts and talents to help others.

This will feel like dying…but paradoxically it will lead to more life than you can imagine…as well as finding your true self.

As Jesus said, “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit” (John 12:24).

What “fruit” is your life meant to produce?
