From The Mud Puddle

When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. Luke 7:37 and 38

A simple act of worship, a simple act of faith, a simple knowledge of who Jesus is..

Her worship was heartfelt. She was a sinner, much as we all are, much as I am as well. The perfume was poured on his feet and she wiped the tears and the perfume with her hair. She took on the fragrance of Christ as she worshiped. It reminds me of another verse...

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. 2 corintians 2:14 -16

May I be a worshiper and be the fragrance of Christ as I go into all the world. May I reflect His glory so that others can see Him in all I do.
