How thankful are you for God's love and grace, His forgiveness?
How do you feel about Him?
You see when God forgives us for much sin we cannot, but help to be ever grateful to
Him! Sin can have such a "hold" on us, but when we are released, it is so "freeing"! Their is so much gratitude!!
like the sinful woman who washed Jesus' feet! Not only that, she wiped them with her hair and anointed them with oil:
"And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the
Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she
began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed
them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying,
“This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she
is a sinner.”
And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”
he said, “Teacher, say it.”
“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five
hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me,
therefore, which of them will love him more?”
Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one
whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman
and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed
My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased
to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant
oil. 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.”
(Luke 7;37-47 NKJV)
So ask yourself this today. How grateful am I for His love, grace and forgiveness? And give yourself an honest answer!
You see, we can easily take for granted the love, grace and forgiveness that God gives to us through Christ! So as you
walk through this day, think on these things!!
