It is up to us to decide if we are going to volunteer. Up to us to decide if it is a worthy or noble cause. Up to us, to decide who it is that we are willing to help or serve. But, being a Christian, being a follow of Christ, following his example, means that we are to lead lives of service. Or in the words of Jesus, “you must be slaves of all.”
And we do this....not in order to become great. We do this...not in order to achieve fame or success. We do this...because the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for you, so that you are free to give your life in service to others.
