I’VE COME TO POUR OIL ON HIM

There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. Matthew 26:7

Is it hard for others to understand your praise? Do people really understand the cost of your oil? Do people really get what it takes to carry your alabaster box? Have you poured it all on the Father’s head? I’ve come to pour oil on Him…

So often in life people think that they really understand why it is that you praise. There are even times when others say that it does not take all of that. There are even times when others do not think that your worship is for real. I’ve come today to remind someone that it does not matter what others think or what they say. They have neither a heaven nor a hell to put you in. I’ve come today to remind you that you must always keep your heart pure toward our Heavenly Father. I’ve come to pour oil on Him…

At some point in our spiritual walk we must grow up and realize that there is nobody greater than our Heavenly Father. All that we have and all that we will ever be are to the glory of His Kingdom. There is no explanation needed for serving Him. We must do it in spirit and in truth. When He saved you it was not by mistake. He called you for a purpose. He called you to live on purpose. He met you at your point of need and saved your soul from a burning hell. He did all of this so that you would one day take all of your oil and pour it upon Him. During Jesus’ walk on earth a physical oil was poured upon His head which turned out to be in preparation for His death on the Cross, but since He got up from the grave we can now pour our oil on Him at all times. The oil that He is looking today for from each of us is our souls. I’ve come to pour oil on Him…

Does the Lord truly have your soul? Are you really sold out to Jesus? When someone needs do you give with a cheerful heart? When someone spitefully misuses you do you forgive anyway? Does the Lord have your soul such that others can’t tell the difference between you and Him? You see when the oil was poured upon His head everything of value for this lady was being poured out of her lovingly. This is the same thing that we must do. Sometimes we need to attend the meeting at church even if we are tired for the glory of His Kingdom. Sometimes we must get up in the wee hours of the morning to make sure we are reading His Word. Sometimes we must carve the time out throughout the course of the day to give God some glory. Sometimes we must give all that we have. I’ve come to pour oil on Him…

It is my sincere prayer today that someone realizes that there is more in you than you realize. Living for God is not always simple or easy, but it does require your diligence. He knows that there are times when you will be pushed, but you will pour out your oil regardless. You will find that as you pour oil it will continue to flow and flow. There will always be more than enough because He is just that kind of God. Try Him today and see that He will pour into you just as you pour into Him. I’ve come to pour oil on Him…

Amen!
