1 Jesus, therefore, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 So they made Him a supper there, and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him. 3 Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. John 12:1-8 (NASB) (Read verses 4-8 on the site)
I am convinced that most professing Christians are absolutely clueless when it comes to genuine worship of the Lord in spirit and in truth. …
The idea that going to a building once or twice a week to sing a few songs and listen to a Bible lesson and a sermon constitutes genuine worship would be foreign to Jesus Christ, the Apostles, and the early Church. Genuine worship is more than singing God glorifying songs or simply praying a prayer that someone else wrote. If it isn’t these things, then what is it?
From John 12:1-8 we learn of an event that took place in the last few days of Jesus’ earthly ministry. It was a dinner party that took place at Simon the Leper’s house. Jesus was there as were Lazarus and his two sisters, Mary and Martha. Mary performed an act at this party that shows us what real worship is.
