He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

The Woman That Came, Part 7

Luke 7:47-48, 47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.” 48 Then He said to her, “your sins are forgiven 49 “and those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”.

The 1st problem people had with Mary’s type of worship. The 2nd problem was with Jesus who forgave her. John the Baptist already herald Jesus as the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Jesus speaking of Himself said He we the Son of Man with the power to forgive sins. They missed all that and would not humble themselves and worship Him as this woman forgiven of many sins.

We must learn to know Him before we can love Him; and we must love Him before we can desire to obey Him. In the four gospels the one common denominator in the story is JESUS the one whom we worship. Everything told in the story centered on Him. He is the reason why the hearts were revealed. We don’t hear Him in the story asking to be worshiped or demanding, but when one of His own come in and did it, He was moved. She lifted Him from the earth, John 12:32. Picture those with stones of judgment throwing them down under conviction. Jesus said what the woman did would be preached on forever. Now is He the common denominator in your story. What you do for the Lord may sound silly and foolish but before His eyes, it’s very significant if it’s biblical. Your life in Christ is a story being recorded to be reported, the question is, who gets the credit? I hope Jesus does.
