“If you want to be great, learn to SERVE …” – JESUS
At House of Triumph we believe in the power and privilege of SERVING in God’s Kingdom. In a world just hitting 7 billion people … its apparent that apart we can do very little, but together, as one, we can accomplish GREAT things for God.
TAKE YOUR PLACE
Across the earth, there’s only one YOU. Packed in YOU are gifts, desires, talents and purposes that are incomparable to any other. Maybe you know where you “fit” … maybe you have NO IDEA … in either case, rest assured everything you need for the map of life is IN THE HOUSE. We constantly receive stories of individuals who started serving in the Church and by investing their time and talent in God’s House have now opened businesses and cultivated NEW facets about themselves that they could have never imagined present. No matter your collection of skills, quality of background or personal vision – you can be SURE that God has a PLACE for you in His House … TAKE YOUR PLACE.
THE POWER OF SERVING OTHERS
We are a church that is all about a God, who is all about people. Beyond inheriting eternal life and having an intimate up-close and personal relationship with Jesus – as Christians we get the privilege and power to make a difference in the lives of others every single day. At House of Triumph we dare to say that God didn’t design ministry for just a few people but rather that every member of our church is a minister. Serve and become a full-time minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by simply seeing needs and meeting them.
Our Pastor (Pastor Sergio Lopez) teaches that the ministry of JESUS could be summed up in 2 simple statements … see a NEED and MEET it … feel a hurt AND heal it. In other words, somebody SERVE somebody!
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” – 1 John 3:16-17
JESUS … the ultimate SERVANT
Jesus came to serve. “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant” (verse 26). Jesus shows us what the Father is like (John 14:9) — not just what he was like 2,000 years ago, but what he is like all the time.
True greatness is not in power, but in service. God sets the example. The meaning of life is not in having authority over others, but in helping and giving to his greatest love … His people. That is the only way that eternal life is going to be enjoyable for everyone.
Jesus set many examples of service. A special one happened the evening before his crucifixion. He got down and washed the 12 disciples’ feet as a lesson in humility and service. “I have set you an example,” he said, “that you should do as I have done for you” (John 13:15). Don’t consider yourself too important to kneel down and help somebody. Leaders in the church should be servants.
Paul said that we should “serve one another in love” (Galatians 5:13). “Carry each other’s burdens,” he wrote, “and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).
If you want to be like Jesus, get involved in his work!
