To serve Christ takes on many different forms…find the way He is calling you to serve Him.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 7:50 - And Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
Read - Luke 7:36–50
Jesus spent time with many different people groups and social classes. In this account, He is with some wealthier folks in their home and also joined by a woman only known as ‘immoral’. The two social classes would clash but Jesus brings clarity and love into the situation. Jesus brought His love into settings that needed it and gave us a charge to do the same.
Lord, You have forgiven me much and I love You much!
Take a look at Luke 12:48 to see another word from Jesus on how the level of blessing translates into the Christian Life.
At what point does God love a person? Is it once they have accepted Christ and have been Mended? Certainly, His love is present at that time. However, God’s love for us is eternal. It was present before He Made you and it was present when you became Marred by Sin and it will be present even if you are Misled by the Enemy. Knowing the love of God in this way helps you live in that love rather than try to earn it. Living in that love will also help you reciprocate love to God just as this woman did at Simon’s house that day.
