Multiply / Leadership / Week 03

John 12:1-8 - “Multiply Worship”
  • John 12:1–3 ESV 1 Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 So they gave a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those reclining with him at table. 3 Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
  • John 12:4–6 ESV 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said, 5 “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it.
  • John 12:7–8 ESV 7 Jesus said, “Leave her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of my burial. 8 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.”
  • DON’T ADD TO, SUBTRACT FROM, OR DIVIDE YOUR WORSHIP, MULTIPLY IT!

  • of worship.
  • Romans 12:1–2 ESV 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
  • your motives.
  • Romans 6:12–13 ESV 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
  • your love to Christ.
  • Ephesians 5:1–2 ESV 1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
  • Break It Out:

    1. What is the most extravagant gift you have ever given to someone? Was it difficult to give something of great value away? How was the gift received?

    2. What was your most important takeaway from Sunday's sermon?
  • Talk it Out:

    3. What does treasuring Jesus more than our stuff look like in practical terms?

    4. How would you describe your motive for serving Christ primarily?

    5. How can you keep the right motive in focus? 6. How practically can you keep alive and deepen your love and devotion for Jesus?

    7. Mary spared no expense to show her love for Jesus. She poured out an expensive jar of perfume to honor him. How can we honor Jesus with our lives, as Mary did?

    8. Give some thought to what Mary did—pouring vile of perfume worth a year's wages on the feet of Jesus, and then wiping his feet with her hair. How does this cause you to think about your own life—and your own sacrificial giving?

  • Work It Out:

    9. What are you challenged and willing to “pour out on Jesus' feet”?

    10. How can your small group pray for you? Or is there a prayer request you would like to share with our prayer team? (prayer@verdecc.com)
