Time and time again I am reminded that we all have sinned and are in need of saving. Luke 7 also reminds us that those who are the most in debt appreciate the forgiveness much more than someone who has sinned less.
This teaches me that I need to recognize my flaws and mistakes and be thankful that Jesus is the only gateway to true forgiveness of sins. Also, don’t turn away those that Jesus would forgive: the individuals may not be who we expect.
The woman in this chapter was saved and forgiven of her sins because she adored the holiness of the Son of God. She knew who He was (had faith) and knew what He was capable of – this above that of the status of the Pharisees.
Thank you Lord for Your love and that you forgive us of our sins by faith in You.
