Matthew 26:6-13. Here is a picture of a woman who expressed extravagant love for Jesus without regard for cultural protocol or what people around her might think. Her gaze was upon Jesus and nothing else mattered. Because of her passionate love, Jesus predicted that her story would be told to the whole world. Here we are 2,000 years later, on the other side of the world, learning from her story.
From Luke 7:36-50. Jesus’ openness to sinners has always made the self-righteous cringe. At the same time, it moves sinners to faith, opens the door to forgiveness, and engenders beautifully extravagant acts of love and devotion. Come see what God has for us in the heart-stirring gospel story.
