Entitlement


Church Family,

Mark 10:42-45 And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

When we live with Entitlement it keeps us from giving our lives for God’s mission and leads us to taking from others for satan’s mission. For a believer to refuse to serve is unbiblical. It is the opposite of Christ to live Entitled.

Are there service opportunities that are beneath you? Are there lengths that go to far to reach the world for Jesus? Do you demand that your preferences/voice/desires be heard louder than others? Entitlement is a worship killer! It focuses on the lie that God and man should worship us and do as we desire.

Can I encourage you today to consider how you are living a life of Spiritual Entitlement? Do you easily get mad at God because you are having a bad day? Is your anger at others always their fault?  If the answer to these questions is easy, then you are struggling with Entitlement. Admit your sin, humble yourself, beg God for forgiveness, and finally go and tell others of the forgiveness you found in Christ.

Reminders:

  1. Visitation tonight at 5:30 spaghetti and salad, 6:15 we go out. A sign of entitlement is that visitation is for others and not for you. God commanded that we should all Go and make disciples.
  2. Softball game at 7pm with White Savannah. Come out and join us
  3. Family Summer Camp Thursday through Saturday. We will leave the church at 2pm and return around 11am Saturday.
  4. August 15th Family Fun Night at 6pm
  5. Praise God yesterday was our 9th Baptismal service of the year. Beg and plead with God for the next soul that He will bring from Eternal death into Eternal life.

Love, Serve, Go
