Jesus stopped at the village of Bethany as he approached Jerusalem, having dinner at the home of Simon the Leper. Joining Simon, Jesus and his disciples for dinner were his friends, Martha, Mary and Lazarus. While having dinner, Mary was greatly moved in her spirit, and poured a bottle of perfume on the feet of Jesus, and washed his feet with her hair. The bottle of perfume was worth a year's wages!
I am challenging our congregation to pour out our spirit of worship to Jesus this week, just as Mary did. As we open up out heart and pour out to Jesus our worship, prayer and praise, the Bible tells us that out of our belly shall flow a river of living water! We shall be filled with the Holy Ghost and fire!
I will be joining with you in the challenge!
