What Jesus Did! 'Wherever' — Mark 14:9

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

I tell you the truth. The Good News will be told to people in all the world. And in every place where the Good News is told, the story of what this woman did will also be told. The thing she has done will be told and people will remember her."
— Mark 14:9 NLT
Illustration of Mark 14:9 NLT —  The thing she has done will be told and people will remember her.

Key Thought

Some events are too precious to forget. Jesus wanted the sacrificial love shown by this woman to be wedded to the story of his gospel. They fit together. Wouldn't it be great if when we die our lives have been lived in such a way that they fit naturally with the story of the Gospel?

Today's Prayer

Lord God Almighty, my Abba Father, help me live my life in such a way that it is consistent and complementary to the Gospel. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
