Luke 7:44-50
44 Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn’t offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You didn’t greet me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she has anointed my feet with rare perfume. 47 “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” 48 Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 The men at the table said among themselves, “Who is this man, that he goes around forgiving sins?” 50 And Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

Jesus has been invited to eat dinner with a religious leader, a Pharisee. When a certain immoral woman hear Jesus was there she entered and began crying at his feet, kissing them and anointing them with oil. The Pharisee became outraged and began to say if Jesus was a prophet He would know what kind of a woman was touching Him. Jesus did know; Jesus knew her every sin. Yet Jesus saw the sorrow and desire for forgiveness and it was this woman’s faith which caused Jesus to say to her, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

I think we sometimes forget God and Christ can see our every sin. I think we believe we can hide those sins from God. But the truth is we have a difficult enough time hiding them from people around us. Others see our actions and know what sins we have in our lives. And if mortal man knows those sins, then the eternal father of heaven who created us knows them all. While God knows each and every hideous sin, He is more willing to forgive than anyone else. All we have to do is have faith in His love, mercy and grace that He provides through His son Jesus. Just think of your most horrible sin and remember Jesus still loves you, Jesus still finds you precious, and Jesus is willing to forgive whatever you ask Him to forgive. Pray that you may understand the loving forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Thank Him for his mercy and grace.
