Mary of Bethany – The Woman who Worshiped With Expensive Fragrance | John 12:1-8

First off we apologize for some of the slight technical glitches in the sound.

In this sermon, Pastor Joel Igene explores the story of Mary of Bethany, who anointed Jesus with expensive perfume a few days before his death. He explains the significance of her act of worship and devotion, and how it contrasts with the attitude of Judas, who criticized her for wasting money. This biblical story challenges us to examine our own hearts and ask ourselves if we are truly willing to give our best to Jesus, or if we are holding back somethings from him.
