Christ gave his whole livelihood

Generous tithing (20%)

Poor widows (2)
    Humble, trusting
    God does amazing things through them
    Gave her own “livelihood”
         Unreasonable?

“God Is So Devoted to You”

2nd Sunday Lent

God has been so good to us

Devotion / sacrifice / love
Adoration eg

Sacrifice / devotion
Bringing something important to God for him to make holy
Even though some (all) had to be destroyed
Offered to God who is first
Sacrifice means praise, worship, love

Abraham / Isaac
So devoted to God

God / Jesus
So devoted to you

You / God
Rom 12:1 “I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship.”

What is Your One Thing?

“City Slickers”
The secret of life is finding your one thing.

All good personified in Him
Love / sacrifice / Col 1:24
Abraham and Mary get it
