Lent 2017 – Holy Wednesday
Today is Holy Wednesday.
It was on this day that the woman anointed Jesus with expensive perfume in Bethany. It was also on this day that Judas agreed to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. (See Matthew 26:6-16.)
As we remember this day, let us honour the Lord with our most expensive gift. Let us also ensure that we do not betray our Lord Jesus Christ through our actions and words.
Permit me to share this prayer from page 101 of the Methodist Book of Worship for Church and Home (1964):
“Assist us mercifully with thy help, O Lord God our salvation, that we may enter with joy upon the meditation of those mighty acts through wich thou hast given unto us life and immortality; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
