90 Days Through The Bible: Day 75: Luke 13-24

As I finished reading Luke, I heard over and over: serve others, serve, serve, serve. Jesus the Son of God came to serve us. He left heaven and came to earth to live as a man to die on a cross to bring us back to God. He came to serve. Jesus is asking us to do the same thing: serve others, and serve God.

for Your sacrifice on the cross to wash away my sins and for the gift of the Holy Spirit.
