Jesus is anointed at the beginning of His public ministry and just before the end of His life on earth. The anointing at Bethany brings the ministry of Jesus on earth to conclusion and sets the stage for His disciples to continue it.

Each follower of Jesus is anointed in His Name. May we have the fragrance of Christ.

Dear God, may I be anointed with your Spirit. May my sanctification be manifest in what I say and do. Make me holy as you are holy.
