Praise to Christ, Anointed with the OIL of GLADNESS

“But of the SON He says,

…Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your companions.’”

Hebrews 1:8-9

Recently, I watched a friend prepare a salad. First, she washed and dried the lettuce leaves. Next she tore them into pieces. But the salad wasn’t ready to be served. She took a bottle of olive oil and poured it on the lettuce to flavor it. As Christians, Christ has washed us and put us in places of service in our homes and work places. Sometimes we may feel as the lettuce – torn and shredded. But we must always remember that Christ, whom God anointed with the OIL OF GLADNESS, lives in us. We can pray, “pour Yourself upon me.” When we do, we’ll experience Christ’s OIL OF GLADNESS giving our lives a heavenly flavor…even if we’re torn and shredded.

Lord Jesus Christ, I praise You! Pour Your OIL of GLADNESS upon me so others taste the joy of You in my life.
