Luke 7:36 – 50

The Story of the Sinful Woman

 

Talk

Considering who Jesus hung around with, what he did, how he taught, Jesus provided plenty of offence to the established people of his day. 

·        How does Simon see the woman? How does Jesus see the woman?

·        In your relationships are you a big forgiver, or a stingy one? Why?

 

The offensive message of Jesus is that we are accepted despite what we do and who we are.

·        What do you think is the tone in Jesus’ voice when he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace”?

o   Judicial; like a judge

o   Clinical: like a psychiatrist

o   Pastoral; like a minister

o   Paternal; like a father

o   Authoritative; like a sergeant

 

When we are most able to admit our fallibility then we are most able to participate in his kingdom.

·        What do you learn from this story that you can apply this week?

 

Pray

Dear God, Thank you for being our father, and for loving us and forgiving us, no matter what it is that we have done. Help us to forgive others in the same way so that through us, they can see your love. Amen

 

Bless

(Name), child of God, your Sins are forgiven and your Faith has saved you. Go in peace.
