|Revd. Chee’s sermon theme is entitled:
“A smelly task – any volunteers?”
Our Scripture Readings are:
Epistle: Philippians 3:4-14*
Gospel: John 12:1-12* (*click for online Bible)
Pastor Chee’s brief :Have you been to the movies lately or perhaps been on a plane flying off somewhere for a vacation. No sooner had you settled down on your seat perhaps even catching up on a wink or two, your nose picked up a most unpleasant smell – surely not durians in a cinema or on a plane, you muttered to yourself? Where is it coming from? Is it on top of me or by my side? The gall of people putting their feet on headrests or on seats.
Would you dare stare down the person doing it and make a complaint?
Smelly feet! How do your feet smell? Is it offensive to others, I wonder? Would you care to do a bit of investigation (unnoticed by others)? But do take precautions, lest you pass out.
Mary did an incredible job for Jesus’ feet. These are feet that have walked for miles along the dusty plains. These are worn-out feet – the good thing is that they are not covered but well-ventilated. So perhaps, not too unpleasant. Nevertheless, Mary’s act of devotion knows no bounds. To wipe Jesus’ feet with a pint of pure nard/perfume (unadulterated or watered down) with her hair – is unthinkable.
What’s the best gift you have ever given to someone you love? How much did it cost you personally? WOW! That must have been very special.
Now think about Jesus. What would you give to him as your act of devotion?
We are now one week away from Palm Sunday when we will commemorate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem for the final time. Here, we will witness Jesus’ act of love for you and me.
Come this Sunday to learn of Mary’s devotion to her Lord and may we learn from her.
We are on Zoom and in person from 10.00 am at the Student Christian Centre on 328 Phyathai Road (near Ratchatewi BTS – in the direction of Asia Hotel).
Pastor Chee will lead a celebration of Holy Communion on this first Sunday of April. If attending on-line (Zoom), please prepare your bread and wine (fruit juice).
