Your Fragrant Oil Has Worth!
“I have nothing to bring that could please Jesus ... my life is a disaster. It’s total chaos. I’m not talented, have no money ...” Do you recognize yourself in these words? Do you know someone who would say this of him/herself?
The enemy is a liar. The Bible says that he is the father of lies (see John 8:44). This means that there is absolutely no truth, not even an ounce, in him! The enemy tries to plant lies within you to separate you from Jesus, from His grace and love. Which lie am I referring to in particular? The one that says, “I have nothing to give to Jesus.”
There was a woman who loved Jesus in her own way. In the Bible, in Luke 7:37-38, it says, “And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.”
We don’t even know the name of this woman. We only know that she was “a sinner.” Yet, she brought what she had: her fragrant oil and her tears.
In verse 47, Jesus says about this woman, “Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much.” You can give what is inside of you. You can literally pour out your soul and life at His feet. You can give your love to Jesus, your heart to Jesus, your tears to Jesus.
Don’t say any longer, “I have nothing to offer Jesus”! If you love Him ... offer Him your love, just like the song, “Pour My Love On You,” says. Love Him in your own way ... with your “fragrant oil.” With your words. If you have no more words to give, with your tears. If you have no more tears, with your sighs. Love Jesus!
