Hi, today the pastor preached on Mark 1:1-9 which talks about how Mary pours the jar of Nard on Jesus’ head and how the disciples get upset about how she “wasted” the Nard.
The pastor talked about how there is extravagant giving and how there is excellent giving. The pastor said that we should excel in giving in order to honor Christ. Then he said that we should leverage as much as possible so that we can give money. Then he said that we should give to the local church and to disciple making.
Jesus gave the ultimate gift, Jesus gave the most amazing gift, He gave His life for us on the cross! He took our sins and God’s wrath on Him and He died for us so that we could live. We were sinners who needed a savior, and Jesus was and is our savior. Jesus gave us the most amazing gift ever, and we live because of that.
Jesus gave His life so that we could live. That is the most amazing gift ever, we should praise God because of that.
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
