Offer prayer... prayer is the connection point.

Big Idea:
In order to Create God Space for others, we have to first create God space for ourselves.

No Inflow, No Outflow..

Matthew 10:8 NLT
Give as freely as you have received!

What have you received?

Two Sacrifices that are pleasing to God.

Love God... Love Others ...the law of first things.

Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.  And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

Through Jesus, the Father creates the acceptable worshippers He seeks.
Through Jesus, our serving is accepted as a pleasing sacrifice.
