Alex preaches on Mary’s anointing of Jesus in Bethany. Mary’s extravagant act of devotion was misunderstood and criticized by those present. Yet Jesus defends her. Jesus loves what she does. Mary’s actions point to what He will do for us on the cross. Mary pours out her precious alabaster on Jesus but Jesus will pour his life, love, and grace onto us through the Cross. Like Mary, our call is to respond to Jesus’s sacrifice by pouring our lives out. When we do can be confident that no act of devotion to Jesus is ever wasted or forgotten.
