MEMORIALIZED FOR ETERNITY PDF Print

“Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”  Matthew 26:13 ESV

One simple act of devotion, and it’s remembered into eternity.  This story, this recollection, has become a memorial for this devotee of Christ – remembered by all who read His word...  Why?

Perhaps it is the extravagance of the act that causes it to be so.  Because it is that.  The expensive perfume we are told elsewhere, is worth a year’s wages – amazing!  She clearly regards her Lord above filthy lucre.

The radical act itself could be the cause for the remembrance?  A woman performing such an act upon a man, who was not her husband, or family member – scandalous.  She breaks protocol – she acts outside the accepted norm.  Could that be the reason for honoring and memorializing this precious woman?

All of the above certainly is part – but not the full reason.  We remember her because of who receives the action – and why!  Jesus is the Christ!

Whether she is aware of this or not, she is moved by the spirit, to perform an act of love and devotion that causes a commotion.

She hears...
She does not question...
She performs the action, without even knowing why.

An obedient act of love perpetrated without questioning – memorialized for eternity!

This response, is actually the destiny of all such selfless, love-gorged acts performed for our Savior!  God remembers!

May we become loving memorials for our Christ!

– Dale
