Anointing someone is a very beautiful act. In the time of David, to anoint was to claim healing and good health on them. Anointing was a sign of love. Anointing is an intimate act. It requires touching. It says, “you are special and loved”. When God anoints someone, it is indeed a special act.
But, to anoint the Son of God? Mary dared to touch the feet of The Master. She ministered to Him. She was telling Him he was loved. She was, in her own way saying through you, we all will be anointed with the His grace. Through Christ there is eternal anointing.
