September 15, 2013 “Engage … With All Your Resources”


Open your Bibles please to Mark 12:41. I’m in the middle of a series of messages I’ve entitled “Engage … An Urgent Call to On-Mission Living.” Jesus calls us to engage our world with His love. It’s impossible to do that without it costing you something. It will cost you time and it will cost you money. What you do with your time and money is a big gauge of where your heart is. Jesus said that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. One day Jesus showed up at the temple treasury where people brought their offerings to the Lord. We read about it in Mark 12:41-44.

Who would have thought that an act of service and worship that no one much paid attention to would be immortalized by Jesus. This little insignificant event of service and worship explodes with meaning, like the splitting of a single atom releases a force is felt for hundreds of miles. Wouldn’t you like to be part of something that catches the attention of heaven? That’s the awesome power and impact of a small but sacrificial deed.
