IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CLEAR SENSE OF YOUR TOTAL AND COMPLETE FORGIVENESS IN CHRIST, YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME LOVING GOD AND OTHERS. JESUS SAID. “HE WHO HAS BEEN FORGIVEN LITTLE LOVES LITTLE.” THEREFORE, HE WHO HAS BEEN FORGIVEN MUCH LOVES MUCH! (Luke 7:47) “Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven–for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.” APPARENTLY, THIS WOMAN HAD A PREVIOUS ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS WHERE SHE RECEIVED COMPLETE FORGIVENESS FOR HER SINS.
THE WOMAN AFTER LEARNING THAT JESUS WAS AT SIMON’S HOUSE, SHE CAME AND EXPRESSED HER MUCH LOVE FOR JESUS BY WASHING THE LORD’S FEET WITH HER TEARS AND DRYING THEM WITH HER HAIR. SHE NEVER STOPPED KISSING HIS FEET AND POURED PERFUME ON IT AND ANOINTED THE LORD’S HEAD WITH OIL. (Luke 7:44-47) “Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, ‘Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.’”
YOU SEE, YOU CAN ONLY LOVE JESUS MUCH IF YOU EXPERIENCE HIS LAVISH GRACE AND UNMERITED FAVOR IN FORGIVING YOU OF ALL YOUR SINS. THE DOCTRINE OF COMPLETE FORGIVENESS IN CHRIST WILL MAKE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS AND END UP FULFILLING THE LAW.
(Rom 13:10b) “Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
HE WHO HAS BEEN FORGIVEN LITTLE LOVES LITTLE AND HE WHO HAS BEEN FORGIVEN MUCH LOVES MUCH!
BEAR IN MIND THAT GOD’S FORGIVENESS IS NOT GIVEN IN INSTALLMENTS!!!
