Serving Like Jesus

Made for Glory

All of us want our lives to matter. No one wants to go through life unnoticed and not be remembered.

The problem in our culture is that we often have the wrong idea about how to live a great life, to be noticed and remembered.

We want to get to the top instead of being left at the bottom. We want to be the most important, the guest of honor instead the one serving in the background.

For Jesus, greatness is upside down from how we often think of it.

This Sunday at Revolution Church we’ll uncover the glory we were made for and how to get there. The answer is through serving like Jesus. 

I’m excited because we will have a special guest preacher, Seth McBee. Seth is an entrepreneur, an author, a church planter, president of McBee Advisors, Inc as well as a missional community leader/trainer/coach and executive team member of the GCM Collective.

This is an important Sunday at Revolution if you’ve felt like your life should be more than it is or if you’ve wondered how to make an impact in the people around you. 

Remember, we meet at 10am on Sunday mornings at 8300 E Speedway Blvd.
