Worship Resource: Christ’s Call to Serve

Washing of Feet by Leszek Forczek

The following worship resource is made up of three scriptures (NIV) in which Christ calls his followers to a life of service, each followed by Kelly Willard’s chorus Make Me a Servant as a sung prayer response. (CCLI #33131)

Worship Resource:
Christ’s Call to Serve
ONE VOICE:
Jesus said, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last,
and the servant of all.” (Mark 9:35)

ALL SINGING
Make me a servant humble and meek
Lord let me lift up those who are weak
And may the prayer of my heart always be
Make me a servant make me a servant
Make me a servant today

ONE VOICE
Jesus said, “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)

ALL SINGING
Make me a servant humble and meek
Lord let me lift up those who are weak
And may the prayer of my heart always be
Make me a servant make me a servant
Make me a servant today

ONE VOICE
Jesus got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. When he had finished washing the disciples’ feet, Jesus said, “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” (John 13:4,12,14,15)

ALL SINGING
Make me a servant humble and meek
Lord let me lift up those who are weak
And may the prayer of my heart always be
Make me a servant make me a servant
Make me a servant today
