Paris Reidhead (1919-1992):
I have grown leery of story-telling in the context of preaching – having spent years in churches wherein the stories were the message. This story was a beautiful illustration of the Truth, ought to cause every blood-bought child of God to consider his ways.
Thank you Pilgrim. This was good.
Glory to God, Jesus bought me to set me FREE !!
And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. – Luke 7:37-38
Given so great a salvation as ours, and considering the manifold sufferings of the King of Glory as He hung on the tree in our place, it is to our shame that our eyes, hearts, prayer, and praise are so very often so very dry.
Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” – Luke 7:47
