The Story of One Woman's Adoration of Jesus
“Mary and Martha are compelling – and competing – drives within us. Both live and make their presence known by inner pressure. And they constitute a crisis of choice.”
Mary of Bethany stands alone in the Gospels. She was the friend of Jesus, sharer of His secrets. She abides, uninhibited and limitless, an eternal emblem of adoration of Jesus.
Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.
Matthew 26:13 NASB
Mary received from Jesus what no other player in the Redemption Story received: His never-ending command that where the gospel is preached, the story of her alabaster jar is to be told. This book proclaims her memorial place with extraordinary insight and reverence, laced with the goal of following this quiet one who was the delight of Jesus into our own ADORATION.
“The anointing of Jesus is the living portrait of ministry that must go out with the Gospel. The motivation of love for God that spills one’s life out before Him for whatever purpose He needs… And please note, it is a memorial not to Himself, but to HER.”
If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.
John 12:26b NASB
The Bible presents many major truths in twos, contrasting one against the other. Mary and Martha are just such a juxtaposition. Here is a profound gaze at the very human story of these two sisters and the stark contrast between what pleases God and what does not. Martha Kilpatrick quietly and lovingly dispels the hype and reveals the secret of true worship—the complete adoration of Jesus Christ.
“To know about God is one thing but to be ‘known’ by Him, ah, that is the bliss of Mary.”

A travers les passages du Nouveau Testament nous parlant de Marie de Magdala, l'auteur nous rappelle avec brio la seule chose nécessaire. Cela, dans des chapitres très courts qui se laissent dévorer. À lire et à relire.
Translation: (Through the passages of the New Testament telling us about Mary of Magdala, the author brilliantly reminds us of the only necessary thing. This is in very short chapters that allow themselves to be devoured. Read and read again.)
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I am in Love with Jesus.

I am extremely hard to impress with books. But you are an amazing woman. Thank you for writing this. What a correction to me. I have my whole church reading it. It’s not just extremely well written but loaded with wisdom and full of the anointing. Thank you. Definitely a treasure that was hidden from me for too long.
