Love Jesus Extravagantly!


Matthew 26

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,[a] but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.

 
What appeared as Beautiful in the eyes of Jesus appeared  as Waste to Jesus's Disciples. Are you very critical and judgmental in the way others worship Jesus? Does their worship appear as Waste to you? 

Stop critizing. May be its time to Break your Expensive Alabaster Jar and Love Jesus Extravagantly!!

 And Jesus said "what she has done will also be told, in memory of HER". Wherever God's love for people was told, Jesus promised that Her love for God would be told.

40: A Video of Jesus in the Wilderness


After 40 days of wilderness, Luke says "Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit". As we enter the lenten days, days of reflections and days of preparation, I pray that we may return in the Power of the Spirit.

Always!!



"Always"

My foes are many, they rise against me
But I will hold my ground
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Troubles surround me, chaos abounding
My soul will rest in You
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
From You Lord, from You Lord

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always, always
