#6 You live for Him not your emotions

“The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.” (Matthew 26v11 NIV)

This wasn’t Jesus being callous.

These words were in the context of where they were and what was around them.

Bethany was a place for the poor, the unclean, the outcast and sick.

The point Jesus was making was that we should honour Him first.

Seek His kingdom first.

Then you will have the means and the resources to help others.

You are to love them with His love not to satisfy your own emotional needs.

He wasn’t saying don’t care for the poor.

Just avoid substituting works of service for true worship.

It is not either/or, it is both.

Worship comes first as you offer yourself to Him.

He cares about the poor more than you could ever do.

Do you feel the urge to help someone just because they are in need?

Do you do it from an emotional response or do you do it because He has prompted you?

Can you tell the difference?

List all the things you are currently involved in.

Ask Him whether you should be doing them.

This could be very hard because you may feel that you may be letting people down.

If you feel guilty, stop it.

You are living for Him not for your emotions!

#5 You are a worshipper

Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me.” (Matthew 26v10 NIV)

Jesus wasn’t concerned about the monetary value of the gift but rather what it meant to her. 

When people express their love to Jesus don’t compare it with yours. 

It is not a competition. 

Sibling rivalry doesn’t look good in the church. 

He appreciates any act of worship that comes from the heart. 

That is acceptable worship to Him, that is the only worship.

Is worship only singing on a Sunday to you?

Make a list of all the ways you can worship God.

Then ask God what worship looks like to Him.

If you hold yourself back from giving yourself totally to Him ask Him why (if you don’t know yourself).

You are a worshipper of one sort or another.

#4 free to serve

“This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.” (Matthew 26v9 NIV)

They could only see monetary value in what she had.

To Jesus it was an act of love and devotion. 

Don’t let money be your measure. 

Love should be the driving force that motivates you. 

Don’t even be driven by need. 

There is always more need than you can possibly meet. 

Look to Him who is the solution to your deepest needs. 

He is also their salvation not just yours.

The question is: what do you value the most?

The need to work to earn money to live is all consuming.

Give a thought to what the Creator wants and let Him supply your need.

Seek Him first before anything else.

What would you do if money was no object?

What would you attempt if you couldn’t fail?

You are free to serve Him no matter what.

Let everything you have be His.

Your time.

Your money.

Even your energy.

Your thoughts.

Your affection.

Your attention.

Let Him be your devotion.

#3 You have gold in you

When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. (Matthew 26v8 NIV)

No love-offering made to God should be looked down on. 

He accepts it and so should you. 

You can demonstrate your love for Him by loving everyone around you and do it unconditionally. 

Not because they may deserve it and certainly not because it may make you feel good. 

There is no place for sentimentality. 

The extravagant expression of love by this woman revealed her heart. 

It also exposed the hardness of the hearts of those in the room. 

Watch and guard your heart as others express their love for Him their way. 

Always see the good and the gold in people. 

Love them as He loves them.

See them as He sees them.

Love them deeply.

#2 He desires you above all

…a woman came to Him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on His head as He was reclining at the table. (Matthew 26v7 NIV)

Every offering you make to God is special. 

Give Him what you have, not what you don’t have. 

No matter how small or big. 

What He desires is the offering from the heart. 

When you offer yourself you are giving Him the devotion of your heart. 

He is getting what He deserves. 

It is what He desires above all; you. 

Love Him with what you have; for those that love little, give little. 

It will cost but don’t call it a sacrifice. 

He loves you unconditionally so love Him back no matter how you may feel. 

He loves imperfect people perfectly. 

Don’t let your feelings talk you out of offering your worship to Him. 

What have you got that you can give to Him?

Is there anything you are holding back from Him? 

Ask Him what He wants you to give to Him. 

When He asks you to do something there may well be hurdles to get over. 

Don’t let them stop you, with God there is always a way. 

He will show you how if you take the time to listen. 

Whatever you do for Him, do it with your whole heart. 

There is no room for halfheartedness.

Uncomfortable answer

If you are willing to go wherever He sends you and do whatever He asks you. Then ask Him the question and be prepared for an uncomfortable answer

It affects everyone

Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. (Matthew 18:25 NIV)

This is in the context of forgiveness. 

This is how seriously He takes it. 

Unforgiveness affects everyone. 

Like a ripple effect. 

Everyone you know. 

Everyone you come into contact. 

Is indirectly affected. 

There is no escaping. 

That is the debt that builds up. 

It accumulates over time. 

Don’t let it fester. 

Don’t let it grow and be a part of you. 

Whatever happened to you. 

Whatever was done to you. 

Forgive them. 

Forgive yourself. 

Forgive everyone. 

Do it from the heart.

Every word, thought and action

As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him. (Matthew 18:24 NIV)

You have His attention. 

He knows you. 

He may choose not to know all about your debts. 

He is the King. 

Whether He is your king or not. 

For those who profess to serve Him, He is their king. 

You are in His debt to whatever amount. 

It doesn’t matter. 

It will be more than you can pay back. 

It is accrued from the day you were born. 

You have added to it over the years. 

You are not entitled to extra privileges. 

You may not even be aware of what you owe. 

Quite probably, you will lose track. 

But there is an account being kept. 

Every word. 

Every thought. 

And every action. 

However, there is a solution.

Accounts settled

“Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. (Matthew 18:23 NIV)

You can know His will.

You can know His forgiveness.

Let His will be real to you.

Let His forgiveness be real to you also.

This is not a suggestion.

It is a reality.

He is the King.

There is no other like Him.

A king has servants.

He also has sons and daughters.

He doesn’t need to settle accounts with them.

Jesus has settled the account.

He has paid the debt.

The Son has paid your debt to the King.

You should do likewise.

After all, He made you

Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? (Luke 17:9)

What is your motive?

Is your reasoning to create a convenient God?

One where He serves your needs and wishes?

He may want to know why you think that you have a higher purpose than His.

Don’t think you can get away with halfheartedness.

For half a heart is as good as no heart.

A heart only works when all the constituents are working.

Failure of one part is usually fatal.

You are not going to function at full capacity.

This is not how you were designed nor created.

He created you well.

Gave you life to be lived to the full.

Anything less than that is not what He intended.

He is looking to see if you really want to serve Him or the other way round.

He is looking to see your priorities and your focus.

Anything less than eyes for Him is not good enough.

It would tear you apart.

Being wholehearted is for your benefit.

You can’t run a race if you are halfhearted about it.

Be willing to submit to His ways.

He is doing it for your benefit.

That you are fruitful.

A blessing to many.

For their benefit.

He knows what you are capable of.

After all He made you.

He created you.
