    based on 1 rating

    This message looks at the actions of Mary as she breaks open the bottle of perfume and anoints Jesus during Holy Week. It challenges us to ask the question what can we do for Jesus that is beautiful?

    She hesitates in the doorway separating the two rooms. Through the opening she sees her sister Martha hard at work helping Simon’s wife prepare the evening meal in the kitchen.

  • Jesus Tells Date Of His Crucifixion Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Feb 12, 2019

    Here in this passage, Jesus predicts His death at the hand of the ones who should have been the first to accept him as Israel’s Messiah. It is incredible that these religious leaders perpetrated history’s greatest crime during Israel’s holiest festival.

    JESUS TELLS DATE OF HIS CRUCIFIXION INTRODUCTION Life presents us with many opportunities; how we respond to them depends on what we love and what we look for in life. The Jewish leaders looked for the opportunity to destroy Jesus, while at the same time Jesus was anticipating the opportunity more

  • Im The One To Blame

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Apr 13, 2015

    We should do more looking out than looking in to see the truly valuable things of God in the lost people all around us. Break the alabaster box of your heart and pour out the love of God that is in you over them.

    I’m the One to Blame When people examine the Easter story they often find many people to blame for Jesus betrayal, arrest, trial and crucifixion. In fact you could say it is a cast of thousands. Oddly enough while reading this familiar passage I was struck at how easily those more
