Precious Oil

26/6/11 at Katherine

“… a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. ” (Matthew 26:7)

We found it really hard to continue the ride and walk with our horses because as we come closer to the final destination Darwin, the road gets busier and weather gets hotter day by day.

We know we have to finish our daily ride before 8 or 9 o’clock in the morning, which is practically hard, unless the moon in the sky. There are many road trains passing by at 130 kms/h and MooMoo tries to take off out of fear.

We travelled 40 kms early this morning and had breakfast at 8:30 am. Then we began to look for a place of camp for Sunday rest. We were not very successful today and wasted a couple of hours and petrol. Finally we had to come to the show ground of the town. Everyone of out team was completely exhausted by the time we got to the place of some rest around 12:30 pm.

I felt that the cost for this ride is really high. The truth is that we can not do it, if we think of the cost. Financially it is too expensive. Also, we know that we can not do it, if we think of all the logistics and inconveniences we have to bear with. We can not do this, if we think of the time spent for nothing. It can be considered as a great waste of our precious time.

And yet, we do this because we believe that Jesus accepts our hearts and prayers which we are pouring out onto His body. I am glad that we have a predecessor who poured her precious fragrant oil onto the body of Jesus. It could have been considered as complete waste unless Jesus recognized her devotion and love for Him.

For us, Jesus’ Body is His Church. We are pouring out our precious oil onto His Body, the Church. We love the Church and we want the Church may have beautiful fragrance. It’s our prayer and our humble expression of love for Him.

Stephen Lewin - Hi Daesop and team see you in Orange in Sept if not earlier- yes it is not a waste when we do what we can unto Him. Your lives are poured out as an offering – prophetic action indeed, remember what you felt and saw on the the first day of the ride Good Friday and you you saw it written on the Church ….If My People will Humble themselves (2 Chronicles 7:14)….. You have been in a humble position by your choice to do this ride… and also on that church sign at Quorn (where Suzette’s Oz reps (Peter and Kerri ) are today – Quorn Church SA) GO FOR IT- just like the lady with the alabaster box she went for it and Paul when others said dont go to Jerusalem (Acts 21), he chose to follow God and Go for it.
This year we must GO FOR IT for the Elijah Ride to bring in a real revival here in this land. GO FOR IT. Bless you.

Jedong Kim - I fully understand how much it is dangerous to ride in the daytime and I know how much it cost for journey. However, I trust in God supplying in finace and protection to the end point. When I was with Ps. Glen and Brad, I could feel God was with us alway. Even if I could not see him with my naked eye, I could know it and felt His warm-hearted eye. Praie God!!! Bless God!!!

James - Dear Glen, DaeSop and Brad, my prayer for you is simply this:

“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you…” 2 Thess 2:11
