LUKE 7:47-50 NLT “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” Then Jesus said to the woman, “Your sins are forgiven.” The men at the table said among themselves, “Who is this man, that he goes around forgiving sins?” And Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
I am not perfect by any means. Far far far from it. The joy and love that I feel when I think about the horrible things I have done and said, that have been forgiven is amazing. I know that I have been forgiven much. Because of that knowledge, I can only love others and my God with much love as well.
We have an opportunity to come to the savior, and fall on our knees and say, “God, I can’t do this on my own. My own willpower is not enough! Please forgive me, and give me strength to love you and honor you!”
God willingly forgives us and loves us. I believe we also need to forgive ourselves. Yes, there is a battle going on inside your heart and mind everyday. We have won the victory already through Jesus, but we need to embrace that truth and power daily.
I want to encourage you to respond in love to God because of the amazing forgiveness we receive. Also to respond in power because of your Faith in God has saved you. Power & Love: both important for you daily victory!
I love what Jesus says to the woman: Go in peace.
Peace is having zero turmoil. Zero unrest, zero doubts!
True peace is knowing, where you stand in Love.
