Sweet Perfume Of God's Grace

Read: Mark 14: 1-9

We read here of a beautiful act of love towards Jesus. This woman took her best, most expensive, perfume and poured it out over Jesus to anoint Him.

What prompted her to do this? Did she know Jesus was going to die? She obviously saw something beautiful in Jesus and wanted to express her love for Him. Maybe she didn't know how significant this act of love was.

How can our lives be like a sweet smelling perfume of God's grace? How can we express something of God's love to the people around us? Often it can be in simple and practical ways. Proverbs 27: 9 says, "Oil and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of a friends counsel that comes from the heart."

May our lives be like a sweet fragrance of God's grace, so wherever we go we will leave a deposit of that fragrance in other people's lives. Let us also be as this woman - who poured out her all on Jesus. Let us give ourselves wholly to Him, as He gave Himself wholly as a fragrant offering for the forgiveness of our sins. His grace is sweet. And He has poured out His grace upon us as sweet smelling perfume - to spread His fragrance everywhere.

For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernable alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing: To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odour, the smell of doom]: to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]. ~ 2 Corinthians 2: 15-16 (AMP)

May the perfume of your grace
Be poured into our lives,
So we may leave wherever we go
The fragrance of Jesus Christ.
