  • Costly Devotion

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Jun 10, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    Mary's act of devotion was costly but it was worth the price because costly devotion gets recognized, it gets remembered and it gets rewarded.

    COSTLY DEVOTION John 12:1-11 1) Costly devotion is sacrificial (1-3). Weird word isn’t it-‘nard’. Doesn’t sound very expensive, does it? Sounds too close to lard. “Hey, honey, look what I bought for you; this perfume called Nard! I got you a whole pint of more

    Jesus is anointed by a sinful woman while eating at the house of Simon the Pharisee. Jesus' conversation with Simon serves as a warning about self-righteousness.

    I. Introduction A. So, Simon invited me to his house for dinner, and I went because I knew some of the best of our society would be there. a. But I also went because I heard he was going to be inviting the man called Jesus. b. If the stories about him are true it’s about time he mingled more

  • Im The One To Blame

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Apr 13, 2015

    We should do more looking out than looking in to see the truly valuable things of God in the lost people all around us. Break the alabaster box of your heart and pour out the love of God that is in you over them.

    I’m the One to Blame When people examine the Easter story they often find many people to blame for Jesus betrayal, arrest, trial and crucifixion. In fact you could say it is a cast of thousands. Oddly enough while reading this familiar passage I was struck at how easily those more
