John Chapter 12. Love’s response to grace and truth. The Word became flesh and made his home (pitched His tent or ‘tabernacle’) among us. In the old testament, only the priests got to see the glory inside the tabernacle – the colours, the fragrance and the glorious presence of God. John said he saw the glory of Jesus and He was full of grace and truth. Mary of Bethany saw the beauty and glory in Jesus and gladly poured out her precious perfume upon Him. Today, we can still offer acceptable offerings and pleasing worship to Jesus and to Father God. Our sacrifice may seem like waste to others who don’t see or understand the ‘pearl of great price’ but God notices all we do for Him.
