Memorable Deed

Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon, the leper, there came unto Him a woman (Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus) having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His head and feet and wiped His feet with her hair, as He sat at meat; and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. When His disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, to what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. When Jesus understood it, He said unto them: "Why trouble ye the woman? For she hath wrought a good work upon me. For you have the poor always with you: but me you have not always. For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. Verily, I say unto you, wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her." (ST. Matthew 26:6-13).

Forgiveness

No matter what you have done or what you are now doing. God has the power to forgive sins. Decide now to be on His side forever and He will be on your side from now on. You do not need to prove or confess any sins to anyone but yourself, and just start living by His Words and He will do the rest. "Return unto me, and I will return unto you, " (Malachi 3:7). Jesus Christ has the authority to forgive sins; (Matthew 9:6). Remember all have sinned ( 1 Kings 8:46), (Romans 3:23), but to do right is a choice, (Deuteronomy 30:19). Be warned, a healing, signs and wonders only show the power of God and are not in God's best interest (St John 20:29); You still have to make the right choice, for God wants to save you from death and hell.  "Repent." (Lu. 13:3,5)
