Wonderful Things

Sunday I presented a lesson on Jesus - favorite subject of course - and one of the points was a pass through Luke 7 - the "Sinful Woman." She was so taken by her own sin that she crashed a party at a Pharisee's house - found Jesus - knelt behind him, wet his feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. She did not care where she was, how she looked, what others thought - she needed Jesus, found him and responded with a very tender heart full of need...
Monday AM a man called, in tears, hardly able to speak touched by the lesson of Jesus from Luke 7. His heart, soft like hers, turned to the Lord seeking redemption, forgiveness, sancitfication, healing. A borken heart looking for someone to help it mend. The journey of healing begins with NEED.
Like the "sinful" woman (aren't we all?)this brother turned to Jesus. Oh how God could see that kind of heart in all of us...it is like the heart of a child...Jesus said something about that a couple of times....food for thought...Foree
