Title: Saved to Serve

Passage: Romans 12:1-8

Speaker: Pastor Dr. Alex Montoya

Resolved 10th Anniversary

  1. Present ourselves to God. (ROM 12:1-2)

A living and Holy Sacrifice.
Living— your best
Holy— set aside: not worldly, but reverent and
Sacrifice— it’s going to cost you. Day in and day out.

We are saved to serve.

  1. Find our gift. (ROM 12:3-8)
    Two spiritual gifts: talents and gifts.
    God-given supernatural ability: gifts when we are born again. 1 Cor 12,13,14;
  2. Find the reason why God is calling us to serve (ROM 12: )

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. (1 Corinthians 12:7, ESV)

Eph 4– maturity. (V12-14)

  1. Have the right attitude. (ROM 12: 3)
    Attitude matters more than aptitude.

God values attitude more than anything. What should these attitudes look like?

A. Humility (v3)— mark 10:45
B. Love (v 9)— 1 Corinthians 12:30-13:1-3
C. Zeal (v 6)— cheerfulness and joy in the Lord.
