Hidden Figures
So, we’re continuing a new sermon series today: Hidden Figures. We’re looking at some people who aren’t as well known in the Bible, yet they fulfill a vital calling; they’re hidden figures who do an incredible work. The Bible is full of stories about such people who took considerable risks to lead boldly in their time. This series will focus on how some of these biblical figures used their influence to advance God’s purposes. We will also look at who the “Hidden Figures” might be in our lives today and what they can teach us about how to lead with wisdom, strength and God's bold vision for justice and mercy in our world. Welcome to Stones Hill Community Church and Online Notes!

We welcome you to Stone's Hill today!

A typical Stone's Hill service has music (feel free to sing out); some announcements (things that are upcoming that you can be a part of); a message out of the Bible (God speaks to us through his Word); and an opportunity for you to respond to the message (either immediately in the case of a decision that needs to be made OR in the future as you live out the message in your life.)

So relax and enjoy your morning! We're so glad you are here!
Hidden Figures
Sold Out - Mary of Bethany
First, when she breaks the jar and gives it all out, what is she saying? She’s saying, “I’m going to follow him, and I will not be conditioned by cost.”

Second, she anoints the head – a servant’s job and she’s the host. But she goes on to deal with the feet, in the other gospels’ account of this. She's saying "No task is beneath me."

Third, when she lets down her hair, she’s telling you “I’m going to give up everything, do anything for Him AND I’m going to love every minute of it!”

Sell Out – Judas Iscariot
First, I’ll follow you but I’ve got my conditions. If you don’t do what I think you should do, then I’ll find someone who does.

Second, I’ll follow you but I am not doing something I don’t want to do. What is mine, is mine and I’ve worked hard for it and the poor can manage somehow.

Third, I’ll be happy to live with the consequences of not following you and having my own life to go the way I wanted it to.

He was all over Mary of Bethany for “wasting” perfume when he himself wasted his entire life. He committed suicide.

Mark is saying there are only two options: selling Jesus out (use Him) or being sold out to Jesus (be used by Him and spray the aroma of Jesus for as long as you have life). How is your home smelling these days?
