The Anointing of Jesus' Feet

John 12:1-11, "Jesus arrived at Bethany where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus raised from the dead. While Jesus reclined at the table with Lazarus, Mary took a pint of pure perfume and poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped His feet with her hair. The house was filled with its fragrance Judas Iscariot, who would later betray Jesus, objected saying, 'This perfume could have been sold and the money given to the poor. It was worth a year's labor!' He did not say this because he was concerned for the poor, but because he was a thief. As a keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. Jesus replied, 'Leave her alone. It was intended for her to save this perfume for the day of My burial. You will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have Me.' A large crowd of Jews found out Jesus was with Lazarus and came to see him and Jesus Who raised him from the dead. The chief priests planned to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were putting their faith in Jesus."

Have you hardened your heart as these unbelievers? They even saw the miracles Jesus did, yet they refused to believe, sharing He did it by the power of the devil. Don't allow Satan to blind you by your own unrepentant heart. When the Holy Spirit convicts you, don't turn away, but turn to Him in repentance. When you accept Jesus as your Savior, the Holy Spirit enters you and confirms the Truth of salvation in Jesus Christ! Come today and know our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD for yourself!
