Why I Want to Be the “Sinful Woman”

In Bible study this week we covered Luke 7:36-50 and it was wonderful.

If you haven’t already read this story get ready to dive in.

Jesus comes into the home of a powerful and well known Pharisee named Simon.

Simon most likely a man of wealth and power and it was assumed that he had a close relationship with God and may have been considered holy.

But the story does a complete plot twist where the prostitute has a better relationship and understanding of who the Lord is than the Pharisee.

Verse 47 says, “Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”

Getting a little more personal here, how many times have I just brushed off my sin against God? How many times have I downplayed my attitude or disrespect to the Lord?

Newsflash… Sin is sin. In the Lord’s eyes it’s all equal.

The Sinful woman was absolutely vulnerable to the Lord.

What a great reminder to us so many years later. She began washing his feet with her tears and drying them with her hair. She did extreme actions because she felt the extreme burden of her sins.

Each and every day we need to learn this type of love for Jesus.

I want to be like the the “Sinful Woman” as she is called in the story. I want to learn such a love and desire to be right with God that I don’t care who is watching. She humbled herself and took on the lowly place before him to say she was sorry for her sins.

So, my dear friends and readers… Where are you at today? Where is your heart? When was the last time you sat at the Lord’s feet and just asked for His grace to cleanse your heart?

Your testimony is powerful and the Lord will always meet you with love and grace.

Blessings this week!
