Jesus is Anointed By a Sinful Woman | Week 24

How should those who have been forgiven respond to Jesus? With love. In Luke 7, a sinful woman enters a Pharisee’s house and begins to wash Jesus’ feet. Her tears are the water; her hair is the towel. She then kisses his feet before anointing them with expensive perfume. The forgiveness the woman has been granted drives her to love in such a profound way, to show her immense gratitude towards the one who has saved her life: Jesus. Whoever has been forgiven little loves little, but whoever has been forgiven much loves much. Does your love for Christ show that you have been forgiven of much? When God chose to forgive your sins, He incurred the debt. The wage of your sin was death, but Jesus paid it all for you through his death on the cross. Live as though you have been forgiven of much, because you have been saved graciously by the Lord and the way that you love–and live–should reflect that. . . . . .
