During this wonderful week of Passover over 2000 years ago, a special dinner was performed at a house that had just witnessed one of the greatest miracles in human history - a man Lazarus was resurrected from the dead.
At this time a woman named Martha gave her best by honoring Christ with a glorious dinner. Lazarus gave his best by reclining at the table to marvel at the Messiah. Mary gave her best by pouring very expensive perfume on the feet of her Savior and wiping it with her glory (hair).
Judas gave his best by uttering seductive words to lure his hand into the money bag. The Jews gave their best by becoming believers of the coming new promises. And, The Pharisees gave their best by desiring to kill Lazarus, and Christ himself.
What is your best, reveals what is in your heart. Check yourself this Passover week!
