In a culture obsessed with selfies, celebrities, money, and success, it’s not difficult to understand why so many of us struggle with being a little self-centered at times. But while “me first” may the norm for the rest of the world, Jesus showed us what it looks like to live a generous, compassionate, selfless, “after you” kind of life. In this series, we’ll be challenged to move away from the world’s “me first” attitude and embrace the “after you” message of Jesus.

Week 1: Living selflessly starts by noticing others’ needs.

Week 2: Living selflessly requires opening your hands.

Week 3: Living selflessly requires using your gifts.

Week 4: Living selflessly requires sharing your joy.

Week 2: Prayer equals change when we pray with God’s own words.

Week 3: Prayer equals change when we pray like Jesus prayed.

Week 4: Prayer equals change when we pray for what matters most.
