Lavish Worship...

"Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee's house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil." Luke 7:36-38

Mary Magdelene anointed Christ's feet, the feet that would crush the head of the adversary. The jar of oil she used first had to be broken. That jar would have cost Mary Magdelene a year's wages. Truly, that was lavish worship. Would I worship so lavishly? With no regard to the cost? Why not? What is stopping me? Others' opinions? What will people think? or is it me...Anne Marie, you're embarrassing yourself...

Lord, I want to worship you lavishly, as Mary Magdelene did. Of whom much has been forgiven, much is required. Lord, You have forgiven me so much...I have no right not to worship lavishly. Give me a heart for lavish worship. Make me oblivious to all around me as I come to worship You. I love You. Amen and amen.
