Beautiful Act Of Sacrificial Worship

Beautiful Act Of Sacrificial Worship

 

 

 

Do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Hebrews 13:16, NKJV

 

 

 

 

Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus was the honored guest at a feast held in one of His favorite homes, presumably to celebrate the new life of His friend Lazarus. While Jesus, along with Lazarus and other guests, was reclining at the dinner table, Lazarus’s sister, Mary, entered the room with an alabaster box. The box contained very expensive perfume – equal to a year’s wages – that would have been her dowry. Mary took the box of perfume that represented her future hopes and dreams, broke it, and poured it on the head of Jesus. When she was criticized by those in the room as being exceedingly wasteful, Jesus sharply rebuked them while gently praising her for a beautiful act of sacrificial worship.

 

 

 

 

How extravagant is your sacrifice to God? Do you give God as little as you think you can get by with? A little bit of energy and effort when you’re not too tired? A little bit of time you have no use for? A little bit of money you don’t really need yourself? A sacrifice is not a sacrifice until it’s a sacrifice!
