Breaking Some Jars, Offering God Our Best!

Sermon scripture: Mark 4:1-9

Love: Sacrifices (v.3)
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:21

Love: Murmured Against (vs. 4-5)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25

Love: Gives It’s Best and is Rewarded (vs. 6-9):
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
