Becoming Servants

Had a great time hanging with our college pastor Matt Smith this afternoon. It kicked up some old thoughts of mine.
What would it look like for Christians and Churches to move beyond just service projects (programmed ways of giving) to becoming servants (programmed to give)?
I guess that I’m wondering if we are fooling ourselves about our obedience to Christ in serving others by our moments of servitude when what Jesus was looking for was a mantle of servitude.
Don’t have the energy to go into it too deep, but just thinking that maybe we’re not radical enough compared with Jesus’ example?
“… whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew
