Luke 7

Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.

18 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

24 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

25 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings’ courts.

26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

29 And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.

30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?

32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.

33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.

34 The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

  1. For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
    Luke 7:8 KJV

    This centurion was middle management. He was both under authority and in authority over others. Because he was properly under authority, he was justly able to exercise authority.

    The problem with many Christians is that they try to exercise Kingdom authority without first submitting themselves to the Kingdom. The seven sons of Sceva were like this; they tried to cast out a devil in Jesus name without having first surrendered their lives to Jesus.

    The enemy knows when we are attempting to usurp authority. The devil left the man (because he did have to obey the Name), but he attacked and wounded the seven. Thus, we see that using the name of Jesus when you are not submitted to Him can be a dangerous prospect, but being under Kingdom authority is a protective force in the believer’s life. So, if we want to lay hands on the sick, cast out devils, tear down strongholds, and rebuke principalities and powers, we must first completely surrender and submit ourselves to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

  2. At that time the highly valued slave of a Roman officer was sick and near death. When the officer heard about Jesus, he sent some respected Jewish elders to ask him to come and heal his slave. So they earnestly begged Jesus to help the man. “If anyone deserves your help, he does,” they said, I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed. When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!” And when the officer’s friends returned to his house, they found the slave completely healed.
    Luke 7:2‭-‬4‭, ‬7‭, ‬9‭-‬10 NLT
    Because of his faith he was healed the Roman officer new if he can get ahold of JESUS the he will be healed he believes and knew that JESUS was the only one that could healed
    Often times we don’t feel like we are worthy of JESUS we often feel like we don’t deserve his kindness and mercy so we in up run . But God didn’t not died on the cross for the perfect he died on the cross for sinner like me he thought I was Worth saving

  3. 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.

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

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

    There are times when nothing else will do but to weep at the feet of Jesus.

  4. Verses 9-10 MSG “Taken aback, Jesus addressed the accompanying crowd: “I’ve yet to come across this kind of simple trust anywhere in Israel, the very people who are supposed to know about God and how he works.” When the messengers got back home, they found the servant up and well.” Trust: firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of. Faith: complete trust or confidence in. We too should have the simple trust that this centurion had that the Lord could simply speak the word.

    Proverbs 3:5-7 AMP “Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
    And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. [a]In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord [with reverent awe and obedience] and turn [entirely] away from evil.”

  5. 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, Daughter, be of good cheer, your faith has made you well, go in peace.

  6. Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them. “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.”
    Luke 7:38‭, ‬47‭-‬48 NLT

    Prior to this – this immoral woman had been longing to be set free from the bondage of sin. I can imagine when she heard of the messiah, something within her spirit gave her a hope of salvation.
    I will never forget the first time i was ever in His presence – my heart totally embraced by His love❤❤ all i knew to do is weep. Never had i felt such a pure and sincere love in my life at the age of 27 a sinner….. JESUS thank you! It’s the reason i testify of your mercy!

  7. Luke 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.

    The love of God reaches into every walk of life.

  8. 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.
    45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
    46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
    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.
    48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

    We can only pray that when we find ourselves in the presence of God that would behave as this woman and not as Simon. Both of them hungry for the word of God but one came with such humility while the other worried about the details of the others life. I pray that should we ever find ourselves being righteous that we can still living in humility for the sins that we have committed what are they are greater small have been forgiven by our Lord

  9. Luke 7:21-22) In that very hour Jesus was healing many[ people] of sick-needs and distressing bodily plagues and evil spirit, and to many who were blind He gave ([ a free, gracious, joy- giving gift of sight].
    [22] So He replied to them, Go and tell what you have seen and heard; the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are rise up, and the poor have the good news ( the Gospel) preached. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [ the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn. To proclaim liberty to the physical and spiritual captives and of the eyes to those who are bound. Lord thank you for the Holy Ghost.

  10. 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.
    Luke 7:47 KJV
    Here we have two reactions to Jesus coming into the house. One who honored him and loved him and worshiped him and one who was more concerned about what others thought and barely noticed him. We have a choice when we come to his house, will we love him much or little? Will we be more concerned with what others think of us then worshipping at his feet?

  11. 12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.
    13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
    14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
    15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

    We pass by people everyday that have dreams/visions that have died because of their lack of faith, submission to the Lord, or their sin driven lives. We must have compassion on them and find a way to bring their desires back to life through the realm of the Spirit. Be an encourager, be sensitive and take the opportunity God gives us to lead people to a deeper relationship or maybe begin a relationship with Him that Kingdom things can come to pass in their lives.

  12. 6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
    7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
    9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

  13. 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.

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

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

    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.

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

    Her reputation preceded her, everyone knew about her sins, but she didn’t care,! What more could they say about her!! She just wanted to serve Him in anyway possible. She went to the part that the Jews dislike the most the feet. The feet were considered the lowest, dirtiest, part of your body, and since she knew how filthy her sins were that’s what she goes to. The biggest part of Humility it’s at His feet. The woman with the issue of blood gets heal by touching the hem of His garment. The lowest part possible made her whole!!!! Lord help us put EVERYTHING a side Thant hinders us from humbling ourselves in your presence!!! In Jesus Name Amen

  14. iLove the Kingdom
    10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

    Once again we have a fellow that needed a miracle. We can see here by this scripture, that Jesus did not put any limits on His miracle. He didn’t tell the feller that he had to repent or go to church. Miracles express the goodness of God and His response to pure faith. Faith will get you a miracle and that miracle will make your body whole. God does desire that our whole being is made whole without a doubt. He wishes all would come to repentance, and all would receive the Holy Ghost.

  15. 41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
    42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
    43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
    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.

    It doesn’t matter if we were raised in the apostolic church or lived according to the ways of the world before we came to the apostolic church, we were all born in sin and in need of forgiveness, baptism and the Holy Ghost to be saved. We each can find many reasons (all under the blood of Jesus Christ) to be thankful that he forgave us. The longer I serve Him the more I love Him – I do not want to live without Him. Count your many blessings…

  16. 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.

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

    She didn’t come before Jesus with all the “right words” to say, she didn’t come with a “perfectly” said prayer. She came before Jesus as the mess, as the sinner she was, and sat at His feet as she wept and worshipped Him, she lingered in His presence and she was forgiven.
    Sometimes we come to Jesus and we try to pray a perfect little prayer and say all the right words, when all He really wants is for us to be real with Him, to come and sit at His feet, worship Him, and dwell in His presence as He makes us whole.

    “The more I seek you
    The more I find you
    The more I find you
    The more I love you
    I want to sit at your feet
    Drink from the cup in your hand
    Lay back against you and breathe
    Feel your heart beat
    This love is so deep
    Its more than I can stand
    I melt in your peace
    Its overwhelming“

  17. Then Jesus told him this story: “A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver to one and 50 pieces to the other. But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him more after that?” Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled the larger debt.” “That’s right,” Jesus said.
    Luke 7:41‭-‬43 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.”
    Luke 7:47‭-‬48 NLT

    When my sins were washed all away…it was the greatest feeling. Jesus, thank you, LORD for forgiving me.

  18. THY KINGDOM COME
    THE KINGS ATTENTION

    8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
    9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

    A man with a need was a disciplined Leader. Every disciplined Leader recognizes that we are under someone elses authority and that we are delegated authority in the same manner. This attitude and lifestyle is what JESUS described as GREAT FAITH.

    The carnal mind thinks that the most decisions we can make the more powerful we are. However in The KINGDOM of GOD we find that the submitted we are to authority, the more power we have.

    We should constantly ask ourselves the questions:
    1. Who is my direct authority?
    2. Do they know where I am?
    3. Do they know what I am doing?
    4. Do I have their Blessing to do this?
    5. Am I willing to allow them to tell me “NO”?

    These are the keys to GREAT FAITH and how to obtain THE KINGS ATTENTION.

  19. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
    5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.
    6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
    7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

    He thought of himself to be unworthy, his servants thought he was worthy, but the truth of the matter is that OUR opinion DOES NOT matter, GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING AND IF THERE IS ANYBODIES “OPINION” we should strive for, it should be GOD’S opinion about us, so that in the end we can be ready just like this servant was ready to die, we should take by perseverance, the expected end that GOD had already predestined for us!!! Romans 8:28

  20. 8I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.”

    There is that word again “authority”, so many many have trouble submitting to it. Without authority, a business, a home and even church will be in chaos. Everyone should have an authority figure in their lives, but many want to live by “I do as I want, no one can tell me anything” mentality. These individuals are the ones normally frustrated with life. They have no guidance to follow.

  21. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

    “Compassion”. Through reading Matthew, Mark and now Luke, we’ve heard this a couple times. It was mentioned 6 times in the book of Matthew, 5 times in Mark, and only 3 in the book of Luke.

    This is healing is a Luke Original. It wasn’t recorded in Mark, although it was mentioned in Matthew 11:15, it doesn’t give the whole story.

    11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

    Vs 11 states the DAY after, Jesus was teaching, reaching and having compassion DAILY. At a gate on the way to somewhere else, at a dinner party, or in the middle of a storm on a boat.

    True Kingdom Compassion has no boundaries.
    Kingdom Compassion will do what it takes to impact the life of others.
    Kingdom Compassion doesn’t complain.
    Kingdom Compassion is a DAILY thing!

  22. And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

    12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

    13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

    14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

    15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

    16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

    17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.

    18 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

    When the Lord saw the poor widow following her son to the grave, he had compassion on her. See Christ’s power over death itself. The gospel call to all people, to young people particularly, is, Arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light and life. When Christ put life into him, it appeared by the youth’s sitting up. Have we grace from Christ? Let us show it. He began to speak: whenever Christ gives us spiritual life, he opens the lips in prayer and praise. When dead souls are raised to spiritual life, by Divine power going with the gospel, we must glorify God, and look upon it as a gracious visit to his people. Let us seek for such an interest in our compassionate Saviour, that we may look forward with joy to the time when the Redeemer’s voice shall call forth all that are in their graves. May we be called to the resurrection of life, not to that of damnation.

  23. 6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:
    7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.
    8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
    9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

    Faith has no limits. God’s healing virtue has no limits. All we need is the faith to believe and pray. This centurion believed in the authority Jesus had and if He simply spoke the word, from wherever He was it would be done! I think sometimes we think a big miraculous scene has to unfold but really like many preachers have already recently told us, we just need a word of faith. So no matter the situation, no matter how far away that miracle is, just speak it, prophecy it, and exercise the faith you’ve been given! Your faith is enough!

  24. Sometimes, the Message version just breaks it down so simple.
    31-35 “How can I account for the people of this generation? They’re like spoiled children complaining to their parents, ‘We wanted to skip rope and you were always too tired; we wanted to talk but you were always too busy.’ John the Baptizer came fasting and you called him crazy. The Son of Man came feasting and you called him a lush. Opinion polls don’t count for much, do they? The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

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

    “Thy FAITH hath saved thee”
    Eph. 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through FAITH…”

  26. Luke 7
    19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
    20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
    21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
    22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
    23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

  27. Can you imagine?

    Jesus has 12 disciples that he taught and trained.

    So did John the Baptist. We know the stories of Jesus disciples. Can you imagine the stories that John the Baptist have? It’ll be cool to hear their stories.
    “John’s two disciples found Jesus and said to him, “John the Baptist sent us to ask, ‘Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?’””
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭7:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    A person that has been forgiven much will show much love.
    But those that are forgiven little show little love. We have to be care in this time if we get to comfortable and content with our status. Never stop thanking God for mercy. I’ll never be enough.

    ““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.””
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭7:47‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  28. 40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    If we have been filled with the Holy Ghost and washed in the blood of Jesus and our sins forgiven then we have something to thank God for. Doesn’t matter what we have done once we fall on our kneels and ask for forgiveness and we get it washed away we should always worship him and thank him for saving us. Never forget what he has done for you.

  29. I learned that a Roman solder asked Jesus to help his servant and whWhen they were about to reach the house the soldier said I am not worthy to have such an honor come to my house just speak and my serve it will be healed and when he spoke to serve it was healed

  30. 3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

    4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

    5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

    What do others say about you? Are we of good report of the elders? Does our testimony speak clearly enough that we are worthy. Protect your testimony for it is one of your greatest witnessing tool. Your credibility, your integrity…but must of all what concept has good of you? Have we spent enough time with Him that we may wait to hear what he has to say about us? Again we need to protect your testimony in a world that seeks genuinity be true to Jeuss and yourself for there is a great cloud of witnesses.

    Proverbs 27:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

    >Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth;
    A stranger, and not your own lips.

    Job 1:8
    And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
    Job 1:8 KJV

  31. 50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

    BIBLE proves you gotta have works with faith, so what saves you is faith with works! The works of salvation, faith can remove the enemy and trouble in your life!

  32. 50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

    A few words stood out to me
    Faith
    Go
    Peace
    Think about this we couldn’t Go if we didn’t have faith and we could have Peace if we didn’t have faith. It was when I got the Holy Ghost when I found peace. It was when this woman put her faith in Jesus Christ before she could Go in Peace.
    We might be a little stirred up at times due to the fact where we’re putting our trust.
    Is it still in Jesus?
    Am I seeking the Kingdom of God and his Righteousness?
    When we’re not in the plum line of the Word of God of course our flesh try’s to get the best of us. But remember this, where ever your trust is, is where your comfort level will be. Either agitated and aggravated or full of Joy and peace when I se k the Lord.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom!

  33. 50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

    God is where faith is, faith comes from within we choose to recognize that God is first and he’s the I AM. Trusting him and allowing him in faith to do the miraculous is much because God knows if it’s genuine faith from within. God knows all of our needs if we know in faith that need is going to be met then no worries. Give your all to Jesus he’s in control through your faith your need is met.

  34. From the onset of Jesus’ ministry, he uses miracles and parables to help deepen people’s understanding of who he is. When John the Baptist asks Jesus to explain who he is, Jesus points to the miracle in verse 18-22. These physical miracles are symbols or images of what Jesus can do spiritually. The spiritually blind will see, the spiritually deaf will hear, the spiritually lame will walk, and the spiritually dead will live. In the case of this particular miracle, Jesus is moved by pure compassion for the widow who has lost her only son (vs 13). The large crowd escorting her and the coffin to the burial site is evidence of the sympathy others felt for her too. Through this physical act Jesus intends to touch each of those three spiritually, and that’s exactly the result, as evidenced by their response. For they were filled with awe and praised God, and this news spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country. Sometimes just touching one life can impact a great multitude. Jesus intends to touch our lives intimately that we come to the revelation of who he is and spread that good news to others.
