Psalm 91:11 ~ For he will command his angels concerning you to protect you in all your ways.
Studying the book Song of Songs this week. Do you ever read something and think of a song or another part of scripture that reminds you of it? I know I do! The amazing thing about this book found in the Bible is the correlation of marital love as God intended to the kind of love Christ has for us. Therefore this kind of love modeled by Christ is the model for all of us. God did not intend anything less.
The weeping woman in Luke 7 understood the frailty of the human heart. Afterall, it was her life profession until that point. Until she encountered Jesus and she could not stop kissing Him. She took the step. I know this is a really hard thing to grasp when she had the benefit of seeing Jesus with her own eyes. But it doesn’t make Christ’s love for all of us any less strong than this woman of biblical time.
Luke 7:36-47 New International Version (NIV)
When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.” “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said. 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—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”
