O"She hath wrought a good work upon me." .....Matthew 26:10

When the Lord returns and we see him face to face as He is, I trust that we shall all pour out our treasures and ourselves at his feet. But what about today - what are we doing with Him today? Are we pouring out ourselves today and anointing Him?

Several days after Mary broke that alabaster box and poured the ointment on Jesus' head, there were some women who went early in the morning to anoint his body. Did they do it? Did they succeed in their purpose on that first day of that week? No! they were too late. They had missed Him and He was gone! There was only one soul who in fact succeeded in anointing the body of the Lord and it was Mary. She had anointed Him before-hand while He was still here, pouring out upon Him all that she had and all that she was. All the others were too late, for He had risen!

In the Church today as the body of the Lord Jesus Christ, the pressing question then, is, "What am I doing to the Lord today?" Notice I do not say 'for' the Lord but 'to' the Lord. There is nothing that we can do 'for' Him other than to thank Him and praise Him for evermore. But as 'to Him,' are we anointing the Lord Jesus by offering all of ourselves to Him? Are we pouring ourselves out upon Him and so anointing Him in this way? And by this action, receiving from Him in return all that He has for us this day? Again I ask you, what are you doing with the Lord Jesus today? What are you doing to Him!
