Sermon 2018-11-04 – Everything We Have

Posted on November 4, 2018, Pastor: Rev. Paul J. Allen, IV

Scripture:                   Mark 12: 38-44

Sermon Title:             Everything We Have

Sermon Theme:         The widow’s example may begin but it does not end with money.  We must ask ourselves, what have we given to God?  Do we use our spiritual gifts in God’s service?  Are we examples of faith that others can and should follow?  Have we given everything we have to the one who gave it to us in the first place?

I hope that you will struggle with these questions, just as I have.  The story of the widow’s offering should leave us uncomfortable for when we are confronted by her gift, and the knowledge of Jesus’ sacrifice, we realize how unworthy we are.  But the good news for today is that God forgives and loves us still, and that our Lord gives us the strength and courage we need to continue to offer our hearts, minds, and souls for the work of God.
