“Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world,
what she has done will also be told, in memory of her” (Mark 14:9).
And so it has been. To this day, Jesus followers around the world share the story of the woman who extravagantly poured expensive perfume over the feet of Jesus, her Lord. The legacy of her love has reached beyond just one moment in time to call us today to a deeper, more intentional love.
A risky decision. An action. Remembered for generations to come. And what was it that compelled this women to break her alabaster jar? An unashamed love.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)
As you reflect on your own life, what do you believe you will be remembered for? If “the greatest of these is love,” how will you allow Love to transform your actions so that your legacy leaves a reflection of the gospel?
May the overflowing love of God compel us to decisions that leave a gospel legacy!
