Sunday Morning | June 25, 2023 | John C. Majors | Louisville, Kentucky Pastor John C. Majors delivered a sermon on June 25, 2023, focusing on the passage John 12:1-8. The sermon explores the act of love portrayed by Mary as she anoints Jesus’ feet with expensive oil. The pastor highlights three significant aspects of this act. Firstly, Mary’s lavish love is displayed through her extravagant pouring of the oil, symbolizing her deep gratitude. Secondly, the response to Mary’s act by Judas and others represents disordered love, as they question why the oil wasn’t sold to help the poor. The pastor warns about the dangers of personal greed and emphasizes the need to be mindful of weaknesses that can be exploited by the devil. Lastly, Jesus defends Mary’s actions, revealing prioritized love. He states that worshiping Him should take precedence, as caring for the poor flows from a heart of worship. The sermon concludes with an encouragement to engage in radical, lavish worship without apologizing for it, as it can have a profound impact on the lives of others.
