Your Actions Are of Eternal Import!
“What happens when we receive the revelation of how much Jesus loves us?”
One day, Jesus was in Bethany at Simon’s house. There, a woman approached Jesus and poured a very costly fragrant oil on His head (see the Bible, Matthew 26:7).
This woman deeply loved Jesus. She literally poured out her love on Him. The other people there, even Jesus’s disciples, were shocked by her gesture ... this perfume could have been sold to help the poor ... or perhaps to make the treasurer richer.
Yet, Jesus defended this woman. For Him, what she had done was a tremendous act of love. He even added that wherever the gospel would be preached in the world, what she had done would be told as a memorial to her.
More than 2,000 years have passed since this event occurred. This woman surely would never have thought that her act of love would be recounted throughout the ages …
Many of the valiant deeds of the great men and women of history have entirely faded from memory, but what this woman did for Jesus that day is still told all over the world!
When you have a revelation of how much Jesus loves you, you only have one desire ... to pour out your love on Him! Others may think that it’s a waste of time or energy, and even that it’s a bit crazy, but how priceless it is in the Lord’s eyes ... a price that transcends the passing of time and will last into eternity!
