3 “Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had previously had leprosy. While he was eating, a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard. She broke open the jar and poured the perfume over his head.”
What jars do you need to break to receive the Holy Spirit? Mary did not just open the jar; she broke the jar sacrificing the use of it again. Key word here is sacrifice.
She did not care about the jar because she was making an ultimate sacrifice for Jesus. Many people frown and complained because this was expensive oil they felt should not have be wasted. However, Mary did not let the “Nay sayers” ruin her opportunity to worship Jesus!
That is the attitude we have to have when it comes to worshiping and praising Jesus. We have to break out and not care who is watching or looking because in the end we want to be caught up in the rapture. We want to see his face!
Daily, give God your best WORSHIP because he gives us his best at ALL the time.
Most Precious Jesus,
I want to give YOU my best at all times. No matter where I am or who is around me I am going to give YOU my best worship and praise. God you have been so good to me that I cannot help but to praise you.
