What boldness and courage this woman had, knowing that as she entered the room, she would be fixed with accusing and scornful eyes. So why did she dare to approach Jesus, the Son of God? She knew that she was completely loved, accepted and forgiven by Jesus, and she felt free to lavish Jesus with her love by constantly kissing, wiping her tears and pouring expensive perfume on His feet.
Do you know that God completely loves, accepts and forgives you too?
Sometimes it is hard for us to understand the depth of love that God has for us. It is easy to feel ‘not good enough’ or even ‘unlovable’, but God just wants to lavish us with His love and He longs to have our attention and devotion too. By giving God our time, our mind and our heart, we are showing God that He is the number one priority in our life and expressing that same love that the woman expressed through anointing Jesus’ feet.
Prayer– Heavenly Father, help me to know your love, acceptance and forgiveness today. May I seek to know you better and love you from the depths of my heart. Amen
