WHAT THE WOMAN DID

WHAT THE WOMAN DID

Abandon yourself to Christ ...
 and give Him your all.

“When the woman of Bethany broke the box of precious ointment and poured it on Jesus’ head, it was an act for which no one else saw any occasion; the disciples said it was a waste. But Jesus commended her for her extravagant act of devotion, and said that wherever His gospel was preached,
“ ... this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.”
Our Lord is carried beyond Himself with joy when He sees any of us doing what the woman did, not being set on this or that economy, but being abandoned to Him.
God spilt the life of His Son that the world might be saved; are we prepared to spill out our lives for Him?”

“And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on his head as He sat at the table. But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying,
“Why this waste? For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor.”
But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them,
“Why do you trouble the woman for she has done a good work for Me. For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always. For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial. Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.”
Matthew 26:6-13
