Mary's actions demonstrated great sacrifice, devotion and love. She did not care what anyone else but Jesus thought about her. And Jesus received her cat of devotion. Mary's faith and devotion to Jesus is the highest example of what God desires in his follower.
Do you think you have that kind of faith and devotion to Jesus that you can give a pure nard offering at least once in your life time?
Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"
What I heard from Jesus today is: When are you going to give a pure nard offering?
I do not know anyone so far as I know can make an offering like what Mary's did. An offering in the amount of a year's salary! How can someone do that? It must be out of total trust and most intimate relationship just like a husband can give his life to his wife or a wife to give her life to her husband! Judas did not understand that kind of devotion but Jesus accepted graciously.
There always a question in my heart from Jesus, "When are you going to give a pure nard offering to me?"
How do you respond to this question? I don't think Jesus is not talking about how much we can give but how much we really devote to Him!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to give a pure nard offering to you someday because of our intimate relationship with you. You are our all in all. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
