The Case of the Broken Perfume Box

Passage: Mark 14:1-9
Service Type:

In our passage today, we find an account of Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus who was raised from the dead, as she anointed Jesus with an expensive perfume, an extravagant expression of her love and adoration of Jesus, far beyond what anybody is expected to do. With this act, Mary was recognizing Jesus as the Messiah and the subject of her worship.  Let us remember that in our worship we are not coming to get something but to give something... that is, our love, devotion, and worship to God.
