When a certain immoral woman from that city heard he was eating there, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume. Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them.
Luke 7:37-38 (NLT)
How much do you worship Jesus? Here was a woman who knew she was immoral but also knew Jesus. She came to worship Him bringing expensive alabaster oil with her. She entered the house and knelt behind Jesus pouring the oil, intermingled with her tears, on his feet. Some at the table were indignant, feeling it was a waste. They said it was worth a whole year’s wages and could have been given to the poor. This woman came to worship Jesus and it cost her a whole year’s wage, humiliation, scorn, ridicule and judgement. She risked being rejected by those in the house but somehow she knew she would be okay with Jesus. Maybe that is why she cried. She felt total acceptance, perhaps for the first time. She experienced a deep sense of self-worth, so much that gratitude overwhelmed her heart. She was forgiven much and she loved much. How much do you love God? How much have you been forgiven? Today, worship Him.
Dear Lord Jesus, I come now to worship You. You are worthy of all my praise and adoration. I give You thanks for Your love and forgiveness. Please accept from my heart my deepest gratitude.
