The “Town Sinner” had no one in polite society to befriend her. She made her living being used by others as means to an end. Yet in Christ, she found a friend that sticks closer then a Brother. In Christ she found a treasure worth far more than the costly ointment she carried in the alabaster box! A great sinner met the Great Savior-and her life would never be the same.
When sickness assails our mortal bodies, it could be a sickness unto death. Yet God is faithful to give His people the abiding truth of the matter: God is in control. Worship the Lord in the midst of your storm! Worship the Lord in the swirling tempest of life’s darkest hours. In all things, give thanks!
