Jesus Anointed at Bethany
6 Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper,1 7 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. 8 And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? 9 For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 For you always have the poor with you, but ayou will not always have me. 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world,what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”
This woman's act of worship is so moving. Her desperate need to worship Jesus and find forgiveness is powerful and life changing!.... And not only for herself, but for all who witnessed, and all who hear about her worship, study the scriptural account, and especially those who mirror her deep love for The Lord Jesus!
Would you like to carry a reputation where others say, "S/He loved God his/her heart, soul, mind and strength"?
Today, ask The Lord to give you opportunities to prove your love and passion. Ask God to give you the chance to share the love and forgiveness we have in Jesus so that others would never forget us! Live your life is such a way that others thank you in heaven for your faith in God while on earth! Be remembered for your faith! Be remembered for your hope in Jesus! Be remembered for your love for our Holy God!
