He who is forgiven the most, love the most

Forgiveness which was made possible through Jesus Christ death is God’s demonstration of His Love for us, which motivates us to be very responsive to his directions for our lives. We walk in obedience to God’s words because we trust Him. Our lives of loving obedience is best describe by this phrase from the writings of the apostle Paul, a “living sacrifice” because God’s forgiveness and kindness is worthy of us being living sacrifices to His honor. 

Luke7:36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.  

 7:37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that [Jesus] sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,  

 7:38 And stood at his feet behind [him] weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe [them] with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the ointment.  

 7:39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw [it], he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman [this is] that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.  

 7:40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.  

 7:41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.  

 7:42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?  

 7:43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.  

 7:44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head.  

 7:45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.  

 7:46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.  

 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.  

 7:48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.  

 7:49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?  

 7:50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
