As I prepare for worship, I am being led to preach on "the extravagance of God." Christ gave the blind man his sight in John 9. Could he have done less? possibly so, but he didn't Jesus gave him his sight completely.

He resurrected Lazarus in John 11. Could he have done something less. Sure, Mary and Martha even complained that he stayed away too long. However, Jesus resurrected his faithful worshiper, Lazarus.

Mary worshiped extravagantly through anointing Jesus with the expensive perfume that filled the air, and in the process, got all over her body.  She smelled like Jesus. Could she have done less? Certainly! But she chose to smell like Jesus instead.

I believe our prayers need to be open to the "extravagance" of our Lord. Not that we tell Him what we want. This seems to be the essence of many prayers today. But that we hear, give Him permission to do the extravagant, and worship him as he does the impossible.

May every day be a day of worship and eye opening excitement as we worship our wonderful, marvelous, extravagant Savior.
