DON’T FORGET TO BE THANKFUL

April 6

                      I am always thankful to see those who at a young age trust Christ and don’t end up in a life of misery because of their many sins.  But it is amazing sometimes to see how people who have lived such a sinful life, that when they do trust Christ, how much they end up being used by Him.  Jesus says the same thing here, that this woman knowing just how sinful she was showed great love and sacrifice in what she did for Christ.  It takes the same grace to save a young person who is without great sin in their life as it does to save a great sinner, yet how often does that person who has been saved most of their life remember how great a Savior Jesus is and that but by the grace of God they could have been in the same place as the great sinner? If you were saved at a young age, don’t forget to be thankful for all that God saved you from and serve Him in a mighty way.  If you have been saved from such a sinful life, don’t ever forget how much He loved you.  Be a grateful servant and do much for Him because He deserves all the honor and glory for what He has done and continues to do in our lives.

Luke 7:47-50 “Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.” 48 Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” 50 Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”
