Genesis 17:1-27; Job 20:1-29; Matthew 9:18-38

And, behold, a woman…which was a sinner…stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Luke 7:37-38

Notice that this “sinner” worshipped the Lord without a spoken word. She presented her tears and her precious ointment to Him as “an offering and a sacrifice to God” (Eph. 5:2). Her ministrations to Him were a delight to His heart. How good it is to come together to worship Him, with or without a spoken word, in spirit and in truth! “So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him” (Ps. 45:11). —E. C. B.

Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore,
Mortals, give thanks and sing, and triumph evermore. —C. Wesley
