This passage records the burial of Jesus and how Joseph of Arimethea and Nicodemus offered to Jesus. Joseph of Arimethea kept it secret that he was a disciple of Jesus but he declared his position in front of Pilate to claim the body of Jesus and he gave Jesus his own new tomb. Nicodemus, the one who Jesus talked about born again in John 3 and who stood up for Jesus in John 7: 50-52. He brought 80 pounds of myrrh and aloes. It's a hundred times the amount that Mary had poured over Jesus in Bethany (John 12:3). Which means if what Mary poured to Jesus costed one year's wages then what Nicodemus brought was one hundred years wages. Say one year's wages of an average worker in Canada is around Cad$30,000 to $40,000 then what Nicodemus offered was three to four million Canadian dollars!
That's how they offered to their King, their Savior, their Lord!
What can you offer to your King, your Savior, your Lord!
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: What can you offer to Your King?
What I got from Jesus today is a very simple question. How is your offering lately and how much do you spend your money as compare to your offering?
Do you think one day you can offer a year's wages like Mary did to Jesus and do you think you can like Nicodemus offered three millions dollars to Jesus. You need to know no one knows if Nicodemus's yearly wages equal to three million Canadian dollars or not. So, we do not need to compare the two of them who is offering more than the others.
The question is very simple: What can you offer to your King?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to trust you in money issue that we can offer as much as we can offer according to your call. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
