John 13:14-15 says, I am your Lord and Teacher. But I washed your feet. So you also should wash each other’s feet. I did this as an example for you. So you should serve each other just as I served you. Jesus showed us how to serve and told us that we should all do it too.
According to Paul in the book of Romans, serving is also a gift. Romans 12:7 Whoever has the gift of serving should serve. You might be able to think of someone who is always helping out at church. Often these are small tasks performed behind the scenes such as setting up and packing up the chairs, doing the dishes after a church dinner, helping in kid's church, volunteering to help at the church working bee, etc. These people are not too proud to clean the church toilets and other less glamorous tasks.
I have the gift of serving. When I was a teenager I was awarded the Martha Award at church for always helping out. I didn't do things to be noticed, but just I loved Jesus and loved his people, the church. You are never too young to have the gift of serving.
