The premise of the series is that God, through His Spirit, is at work in and through us to form the character and conduct of Jesus in our lives as disciples or followers of Jesus.

Why is this night different from all other nights?
BIG IDEA:
Spiritual Transformation through Jesus develops character and conduct characterized by selfless devotion and extravagant worship.
How do we respond to the one who significantly transformed our lives to give us eternal meaning and purpose.
Selfless devotion and extravagant worship celebrates priceless sacrifice through priceless sacrifice.
Sometimes the celebration of priceless sacrifice inspires radical action that defies all common sense or wisdom.
A life of Selfless devotion and extravagant worship acknowledges Jesus as worthy of obedience and all we have.
Mary's attitude in this story proclaims that "What is broken for Jesus amounts to worship and not waste."
A contrast of Martha and Judas:

Martha submitted to the worthiness of Jesus and discovered meaning and purpose.

Judas denied the worthiness of Jesus and his life came to a tragic end.
This story illustrates Jesus’ words in Mark 8:35-36:

“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?”
Isaac Watts, the author of the hymn "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross" wrote (and we sing):

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
