John Chapter 12 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 Then six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, who had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
  • 2 So they made him a supper there. Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with him.
  • 3 Mary, therefore, took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment.
  • 4 Then Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, one of his disciples, who would betray him, said,
  • 5 "Why wasn't this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor?"
  • 6 Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the money box, used to steal what was put into it.
  • 7 But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. She has kept this for the day of my burial.
  • 8 For you always have the poor with you, but you don't always have me."
  • 9 A large crowd therefore of the Jews learned that he was there, and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
  • 10 But the chief priests conspired to put Lazarus to death also,

  • The Last Days
  • 1 Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead, was living.
  • 2 There a supper was given in honor at which Martha waited, while Lazarus was one of those present at the table.
  • 3 So Mary took a pound of choice spikenard perfume of great value, and anointed the feet of Jesus with it, and then wiped them with her hair. The whole house was filled with the scent of the perfume.
  • 4 One of the disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was about to betray Jesus, asked,
  • 5 “Why was not this perfume sold for a year’s wages, and the money given to poor people?”
  • 6 He said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and, being in charge of the purse, used to take what was put in it.
  • 7 “Leave her alone,” said Jesus, “so that she may keep it until the day when my body is being prepared for burial.
  • 8 The poor you always have with you, but you will not always have me.”
  • 9 Now great numbers of people found out that Jesus was at Bethany; and they came there, not only because of him, but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.
  • 10 The chief priests, however, plotted to put Lazarus, as well as Jesus, to death,

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
