Deut 29:9 and Luke 7:45 "So Many Sins/ So Many Tears" (April 2)
What am I known for? Is my reputation riddled with shame? This girl was known in the town for her many sins, not just for one. Yet, when the Silent Savior welcomed her into His Presence, He received her feeble fumbling flowing tears and touch. He didn't shrink back; didn't require her to change first; didn't even offer a word of advice or help. No, He received her brokenness and said: Luke 7:47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven--—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little. Confess our sins to Him Who waits to hear, waits to untangle the mess, waits to offer hope. Deut 29:9 God establishes you, His people, to be holy to Him. He makes us holy---it's not our achievement, our goal. What do I want more than the Love of my Christ?
