Grow Outward through Service and Witness
The life of Jesus inextricably links service and redemption. He is the Suffering Servant who “did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Isa. 52:13-53:12; Mark 10:45). Our Lord proclaimed truth, healed the lame, freed the demonized, fed thousands, raised the dead, and suffered for sinners. In so doing, Jesus modeled for us the way to carry out his mission.
We grow outward when we serve the broken and when we witness to them about Jesus. To serve others is to do good, beneficial acts for them (Rom. 12:20-21). To witness about Jesus is to tell people that the King of kings died for their sins and rose to life, and that he stands ready to forgive if they will but trust him alone for salvation (Luke 24:46-48).
Service and witness are part of being light in a dark world. As we do good works, light shines on God for those in darkness (Matt. 5:16), and as we speak the good news, light reveals salvation to those far away (Acts 13:47). In this manner, service and witness partner to push back darkness and to rescue the lost.
