The Sinful Woman

This morning I read the story where Jesus is anointed by a sinful woman.  I'm not going to put the whole story here but just two verses that are key to what I have to say today.

Luke 7:47-48

47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.”

I really like this whole story but these two verses....they say it all for me!  Even though my sins were many....and hard to even admit too....Jesus forgave me.  

This last verse I'm going to take from the Amplified Bible because it just works for me....

Luke 7:50

 But Jesus said to the woman, Your faith has saved you; go (enter) into peace [in freedom from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin].

This verse really says it all this morning.  If you have asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins....He has.  If you haven't there isn't a better time than now.  Ask Him to forgive you and believe that He has.  Lay down all your sin at His feet and walk away from it. He loves you.  Now go and live for Him for the rest of your days.

"until we see JESUS....face to face"
