THE CHURCH: Family vs. Restaurant - Servants vs. Consumers

This is one of the best teachings and analogies I've heard about the role of Christians in the church.  Pastor Mark Driscoll's below video exhorts us to view the church as a servant in a family and not a consumer in a restaurant.  His description towards the end of a 'church whiner' is something all church leaders have dealt with and grieve at. 

I am so thankful and blessed by the many church servants I know and pray that their selfless example contagiously spreads into the lives of all Christians they come into contact with.

Mark 10:45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many"

Philippians 2:14-15 "14Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe"
