This image has a story to tell. Read and stay Blessed.

She has anointed My body beforehand for the burial.(Mark 14:8)

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.(Luke 10:42)

 When I was a kid, this incident really touched my heart. I still remember how whenever I was alone, I use to imitate this. Being a woman, I totally understand Mary's Devotion and Love for Christ. I pray and I believe, the Lord would really speak a message to your heart today as you meditate on Word of God. Amen!

  • As mentioned in John 12:1-8, we see great Love and Devotion which Mary poured out on Jesus.
  • Then Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.(John 12:3)
  • This passage serves a great message to us for Passion Week.
  • Before we join and remember Christ's suffering, Let us think and meditate on this passage...
  • Is our relationship with Christ like any of the below:  
  • where do we stand in Christ?
1. Like Mary.

  • It is mentioned in the Bible that the oil was very costly.
  • But Mary gave all that she had.
  • She broke the jar so that it won't be used again.
  • She loved Christ.
  • The reason why she was so passionate about Christ is that she sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
  • Jesus honors her by saying, "But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.(Luke 10:42)" 
2. Like Martha.

  • "Careful and troubled about many things:"
  • Serving Christ but lack of trust.
3. Like Judas.

  • When we read John 12, we can understand how Judas didn't get the whole point of Mary's Devotion.
  • His eyes were fixed on MONEY and things we can buy from it.
  • Apostle John describes him as a betrayer and a thief.
  • He betrayed Jesus for 30 silver coins.
  • He betrayed Jesus with a kiss.
4. Like Multitude.

  • "Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead."
  • Many times we don't go to church just to see Jesus.
  • Our mind is ever on miracle and proof. We follow the crowd and not Jesus.
5. Like Chief Priest.

  • "But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus."
  • Often we need to sacrifice on certain things and people to follow Christ. But do we really mean the WORD, "He must increase, but I must decrease.-John 3:30"
  • Are we jealous of true Christians? Are we worried about His followers?
  • While we partake Christ's suffering, while we join and remember the biggest trial ever on the Court of Pilate,

    Let us revive our mind to Christ...
  • Are we like Judas, Disciple of Christ yet betrays Him? 
  • Are we like Mary, Devotee of Christ yet His disciple.
  • Are we like Judas,eyes ever fixed on money?
  • Are we ready to give our best to Christ, like Mary?
  • Are we like Judas,betraying Jesus with the sign of Kiss?
  • Are we like Mary, repenting over our sins with a sign of kiss.

LET US PRAY TOGETHER,"Receive me in Repentance, O Lord, and in Your goodness accept me, a sinner."
