Her Oil of Worship

The ambience in the room was bound for the turning

An unwelcomed woman walking towards Jesus as He is reclining.

A sinner, unashamedly presenting before revered and noble men.

The allure of her costly oil announcing her fretful defence.

In quiet confidence she presses on to mourn and anoint the King for His burial

Washing His feet with her tears and wiping them with her hair,

She pours out her weighty worship on Heaven's Mighty Royal.

Who He is; what He accomplished; Our Lord and Saviour magnified in

spectacular remembrance.

Angry protesters, indignant accusers, cynical naysayers couldn't touch this

worthy reverence.

Then Jesus spoke;

'Why do you trouble this woman? For she has done a good thing for me'

Assuredly as the gospel is proclaimed, all will honour her beautiful deed.'

Her Oil of Worship, anticipating His death, burial and Resurrection to come

A glorious testimony of God's love and redemptive plan

Fulfilled through the perfect gift of Jesus Christ, His Begotten Son.
