Main Idea: Servants of Christ pay attention to one another while living by faith in humility.


Servants of Christ pay attention to their impact on one another.

1 And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.

    • Acts 20:29-30
    • 1 Corinthians 8:12-13

Servants of Christ pay attention to one another with grace and truth.

3 Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, 4 and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”

    • Matthew 18:15-17

Servants of Christ live by faith.

5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

    • Hebrews 11:6

Servants of Christ live in obedience with humility.

7 “Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table’? 8 Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink’? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’”

    • 1 Corinthians 4:1-2

So What?

Are we, as servants of Christ, paying attention to one another while living by faith in humility?
