Dear Friends,
In Mark 14:3-9, we read:
While he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very costly ointment of nard, and she broke open the jar and poured the ointment on his head. But some were there who said to one another in anger, “Why was the ointment wasted in this way? For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor.” And they scolded her. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; why do you trouble her? She has performed a good service for me. For you always have the poor with you, and you can show kindness to them whenever you wish; but you will not always have me. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for its burial. Truly I tell you, wherever the good news is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in remembrance of her.”
The woman in the Biblical story expressed her love for Jesus by anointing his head with expensive perfume.  How do you express your love for Jesus?   We express our love by what we do more than by what we say.  One way is to be present in worship.  I observed some empty seats in all three services yesterday, so I know there’ll be plenty of room for you if you will come this Sunday.

Are you willing to give Jesus your best?  Your best time?  Your best effort?  Your best example?  When you consider your schedule for this coming weekend, make sure it includes the best time for you to be in worship.

This Sunday is All Saints Sunday.  I hope you find a time to worship. It will make a difference in your week!
