Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
God is seeking true worshippers. And friend, that includes you!
You know, there are few better examples of what a true worshipper looks like than Mary of Bethany. Her dedication and love for Christ is such an inspiration to me.
Mary was a living testimony to what Paul talks about in Romans 12:1, when he says to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” Mary came with all that she had and with all that she was to worship Christ.
She was so focused on Him and centered on Him that she paid no attention to the many distractions around her. She absolutely and recklessly abandoned herself… and generously and extravagantly gave herself… all in worship to Christ!
Friend, that’s how we’re to worship Him each and every day.
So I want to ask you, as a believer, is there anything that’s distracting you from worshipping the Lord? If so, I urge you to confess it to God and ask Him to help you refocus on what’s truly important… becoming a true worshipper of Him!
MAKE TIME TODAY TO FOCUS COMPLETELY ON GOD. REMOVE ALL DISTRACTIONS AND WORSHIP HIM!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
