Small things can make a big difference - this is true in the negative as well as the positive. Examples of the negative are the little foxes that spoil the vines (Song of Solomon 2:15) and the dead flies in the ointment (Ecclesiastes 10:1). However, I want to approach this from the positive. What is smaller than the spices we add to our food, yet makes a huge impact for good on the palate? That is the information we are given in Exodus 30:23-24, "Take thou also unto thee principal spices, ... myrrh ... cinnamon ... calamus ... cassia ..."

Luke 4:16-20

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

The Finished Work Of Christ's Sacrifice

John 19:30, "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

"... It is finished: ..." The work of salvation is completely accomplished. When the work of salvation was finished on the cross, our sin debt was paid in full. In spite of intellectually knowing this Biblical certainty, we sometimes think our ministry, our faithfulness, or our perceived righteousness has some influence on our salvation - it does not. "...
