Week 1: Day 3
Read: 1 Samuel 1:21-28 link
How would describe Elkanah’s reaction to Hannah fulfilling her vow?
What did Hannah hope for her child’s life?
This passage contains an extravagant act of faith and worship by a human but it started with an extravagant act of grace by God. Can you think of a time when you have experienced God’s extravagant mercy? How did you respond?
Read John 3:16-17
Hannah’s story isn’t the only account of a child being offered to God. God himself gave his son for the world and in turn calls us to give our lives in worship.
Read Romans 12:1
· Thank God for his Son Jesus, who devoted his life to God and to you
· Thank God for his grace and mercy in the more practical areas of your life (e.g. work, relationships)
· Ask God for help as you work out ‘offering your body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God’ looks like.
