At Jesus’ feet with shocking extravagance (Growing Deeper with John 12:1-11)

Imagine spending $30,000 in a single moment of extravagance, but not getting anything physical in return. Why not? Because you spent it honouring Jesus.

Others criticized you for it. They thought you were wasteful. They said the money would be better spent on helping the needy. You don’t have a lot of money, but you wanted to show him your devotion. It was that important.

And guess what? Jesus said you were right.

The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly. It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies. This episode is the later—and in-depth look at John 12:1-11.

I take us through the text, highlight Mary’s act of devotion, and invite us to consider the example of Mary’s costly devotion at the feet of Jesus.


The sermon connected to this same section of text is called “Costly, whole-hearted devotion” and can be accessed here.
