Without a doubt, all our decisions will have their consequences.
WE can continue to live the lifestyle that we are
leading, perhaps for some without any consequences. However, for others, the
accumulation of their bad decisions will lead them to continue living the hell
in which they have chosen to be. In the hands of each one of us is the option
to choose between what we want to live. We have been talking about the offering
that Mary presented to Jesus of Nazareth, a bottle of Nard perfume which was to
prepare him for her death. It's like when my mother-in-law got sick, she asked
us for a garden while she was still alive and not when she had left and that's
how it was. Returning to the biblical example, we will see that at the same
moment that Mary offered that Nard, Judas Iscariot decided to deliver the Son
of God to those who apparently would be his executioners, these decisions and
actions were made in memory of both, Mary and Judas reaped the fruits of their
actions both good and bad.
"Truly I say to you that wherever this
gospel is preached, throughout the world, what she has done will also be told
in memory of her."
Mark 14. 9
This eschatological promise about the memory of
Mary is being fulfilled at this precise moment, since we have the opportunity
to be talking about a person who did not spare what he possessed and who
faithfully obeyed the command of the Holy Spirit who revealed to him, the near
death of his great childhood friend, Jesus of Nazareth.
"Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve,
went to the chief priests to deliver it to him."
Mark 14. 10
On the other hand, we have the bad testimony of
Judas in delivering Christ. Let me put a bit of context on this matter: Judas
belonged to a dissident group who wanted to expel the Romans from the lands of
Israel; to do so, they would use violence if necessary. Another ugly testimony
in the life of Judas is that he took money from the ministry of Jesus Christ,
apparently to finance the group that he belonged to. Jesus tried to correct
this bad habit of Judas on several occasions, but he never wanted to change.
Perhaps, seeing that Maria supposedly squandered $2000 on the Master, this was
the trigger to go to negotiate for his life. Therefore, the part that Mary took
was eternal honour on the part of God and the part that Judas took was
disgrace, both on the part of human beings and on the part of God. So what part
will each of us take away?
God bless you.
THE PART YOU TAKE
God bless you and bring revelation into your
life of the Mind of Christ that is already in you. Remember to acquire the
