It’s a rainy day here in LA.
Drizzle, drizzle, on and off all this day.
A little cool.
That said there’s nothing about it gloomy.
You see today, as I type is Tuesday and like every Tuesday for almost a year with only 2 weeks missed has been prayer day for me and my dear and treasured sister a whole state away.
If you do not have a weekly prayer partner I highly recommend you ask The LORD to bring you one.
Does it take discipline and dedication? Absolutely it does!
But then all things godly do, wouldn’t you agree?
In the house of Simon the leaper. What a way to be identified!
Simon the leaper. But he had been healed!
The woman with the Alabaster jar of perfume.
She came to the house. Just brought herself right on in there.
And then what?
(Please be reminded this is only 2 days, give or take a few hours, before crucifixion day.)
She didn’t just remove the cork or whatever type of spill preventative accompanied the jar; she broke it.
She reserved nothing for herself. She poured it all out for JESUS.
Do you need to cease reserving something for yourself and instead pour it all out to JESUS?
YESHUA received her worship – every ounce of it and He took up for her when she was attacked for wasting the perfume. Do we not yet know that nothing we give to JESUS is ever wasted?! To this day we still talk about this lovely woman and what she did for JESUS.
But it was the last straw for Judas. That very day he sought out the Religious leaders to make a deal for the delivery of YESHUA to them.
The disciples prepared the Seder meal. The last time they would eat with Him until after His resurrection. (John 21:9-14; Luke 24:38-44)
And the last time they would share a cup of wine with Him until . . . well, we are not there yet. (Matthew 26:29)
I hope my few notes here will encourage you to read Scripture; to pour over it until Holy Spirit speaks, until He is your TEACHER. (John 14:26)
May I please encourage you again to read the Chapters listed in the sidebar?
May I also encourage you to find someone who will daily read along with you?
Make notes, share your thoughts with your reading partner. Pray with your reading partner.
Even if you cannot daily share your thoughts, at least once a week pick up the phone and share the week’s thoughts together.
Consider this with me: could it be the lack of unity one with another in the Church today is because the majority of us are not reading Scripture daily, nor sharing what we are reading with one another, and we are not praying together?
Please give it some thought — please give it some prayer.
