“Serving is a lifestyle, an attitude, a relationship.”
This is how Ken Fleming succinctly defines biblical servanthood in the preface to his book, He Humbled Himself. The title of Ken’s book describes the Lord Jesus Christ, who is both the perfect Servant and our model for the kind of service that pleases and honors God.
As you read the book and study the related Scriptures by means of this group study guide you will grow in appreciation of the One who came not to be served, but to serve. You will also learn principles for practical application from a number of godly—albeit imperfect—Bible characters who exemplify the same model of servanthood that Christ set us.
