  • He who Loves Much
    Monday, August 21, 2023
    Messiah told a Pharisee, "He who's forgiven much, loves much. He who's been forgiven little, loves little." Does that mean the Pharisee didn't have as many sins as the sinful woman? He read Scripture, prayed and gave tithes. He didn't think he had a lot to be forgiven for. He was just as much a sinner as anyone else, but he didn't realize it. We're all infinitely separated from God and need His infinite forgiveness. The one who loves more is the one who realizes they've been forgiven more and receives it. Believers who think they really don't need a lot of forgiveness are the ones who will love less, rejoice less, and live less on fire for God. But those who know the ugliness of their sin and the immense price paid, know that without God there's nothing. You've been forgiven an eternity of judgment. That's enough for you to become a person who loves much, forgives much, rejoices much and lives all out for God. Because Messiah has done it, and that's enough for you to live a life of love and joy.
    From Message #730 - The Pharisee and The Prostitute
    Today's Mission
    Meditate on all God has forgiven you, and that you're not going to hell. Then live your day in the thankfulness, love, grace, and joy that come out of knowing it.
    Scripture: Psalm 145:20
