DONT KEEP YOUR LOVE IN A BOX!
"She broke the jar and poured the perfume on His head". (Mark 14 v 3)
Mark records: 'A woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume...she broke the jar and poured the perfume on His head. Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another. "Why this waste of perfume? It could have being sold...and the money given to the poor". And they rebuked her harshly. "Leave her alone",said Jesus... "she has done a beautiful thing,...the poor you will always have with you...but you will not always have me.She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body before hand to prepare for my buriel. I tell you...wherever the Gospel is preached through out the world,what she has done will also be told,in memory of her" (Mark 14 v 3-9).
Joseph of Arimathea,brought a hundred pounds of ointment to embalm jesus after He was dead,and not a word of praise is spoken about it in Scripture. This woman brought one pound of ointment and poured it on Him while He was still living,and Jesus pointed out two things:
A) "She did what she could". Acts of kindness are usually not about doing great things,but about doing small things with great love.
B) "What she has done will always be told,in memory of her". What will you be remembered for? A life of service or self-centredness?.
If you think good things about someone, tell them.Go out of your way to fill their lives with joy while there's still time. Those expression of appreciation,those words of forgiveness,that special gift you've had in mind,give it while you can.
Dont keep your love in a box!
1) Ask God for not obeing Him when he asked you to bless someone,that minister of the gospel,that brother or sister or that ministry.
2) Every spirit making me to explain out reasons not to give to the people of God or the work of God be exposed and frustrated out of my life by Gods power in the name of Jesus Christ.
3)Ask God to give you the spirit to love and to give like the Apostles in the book of Acts and the ealy Church. Make a vow to God to be a blessing to His Body in action,deeds and not just words and start from now,make a commitment to a ministry or Minister every month or week in Jesus Christ name,amen.
Oppress the financial,physical,material and spiritual opressors in your life by your giving!!!
