John 12:1-8

MARY ANOINTS JESUS’ BODY FOR BURIAL

“Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume, she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair”. John 12:3a

A missionary society was deeply impressed by the courageous devotion of David Livingstone who worked single-handedly for God in Africa. The society wrote to Livingstone: “Have you found a good road to where you are? If so, we want to send other men to join you”. Livingstone replied, “If you have men who will come only when there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all”. Such is a life that was completely poured out for God. Mary, as reflected in today’s passage, followed the same path of dire hard devotion to Christ by her symbolic act of pouring the expensive perfume on Jesus. The perfume was estimated to worth 300 denarii, equivalent to a year’s wages. That may well have represented her life savings. But she decided to “waste” it on Jesus as Judas insinuated.
What is your level of devotion to Christ? There is always something beautiful and fragrant about what we do out of love. No act performed out of a mere sense of duty, or out of obligation, can fill the air with that kind of fragrance. You must understand that your life is like a liquid and will be poured on something someday. Will you allow Jesus to fill the remaining empty spaces in your heart with His love today?

Birthday Blessing: “If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment” Job 36:11.

RBT Passage: 1 Kings 3-5

“All that is not eternal is eternally useless”. – C. S. Lewis
