40 Days of Service Day 36

Morning Prayer: Lord, how can I serve others today?

Scripture: John 12:1-11

Jesus says, "You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me." Those are sad words. If you only had one more day with Jesus, how would you spend that day? In John chapter 12, Jesus shows up at the home of Martha, Lazarus and Mary. I don't know if they realized this would be the last time they saw Jesus alive. All three of them had a special night with the Lord. We are told that Martha served the Lord. One of the greatest acts of service is hospitality. Martha opened her home to the Lord. She cooked for the Lord. SHe cleaned for the Lord. She provided everything the Lord would need to feel at home. If today was the last day you could spend with Jesus, would you serve Him? John tells us that Lazarus reclined at the table with Jesus. Lazarus was once dead and now he is alive, having table fellowship with the Lord. If today was your last day you could spend with Jesus would you want to fellowship with Him? But Mary worshipped the Lord. She washed the feet of Jesus with an expensive perfume and the fragrance of her worship filled the whole house. If today was the last day you could spend with Jesus, would you worship Him?
