Let Her Alone

said Jesus in Mark 14:6. Do you want Jesus to stand up for you? At a dinner party, Mary poured out the contents of the spikenard ointment box over Jesus, but some there thought it was wrong to do.

Mark 14:6-9, “And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.  For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.  She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.  Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.”

“When you anoint Jesus; you’re praising Him, worshipping Him, you’re getting the anointing all over you, too,”  Pastor Riva Tims
