Christians have the amazing privilege–and responsibility–of living in the love of God. Christ bore our criticism and condemnation on the Cross. Living in love allows us to be a vessel of grace. What pours out of you? If it is not grace that builds up and encourages others, perhaps you have not received enough of His love. Forgiveness received produces unrestrainable love.
44 He turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Have you noticed this woman? When I came into your home, you didn’t give me any water so I could wash my feet. But she has washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. 45 You didn’t greet me with a kiss, but from the time I came in, she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You didn’t even pour olive oil on my head,[b] but she has poured expensive perfume on my feet. 47 So I tell you that all her sins are forgiven, and that is why she has shown great love. But anyone who has been forgiven for only a little will show only a little love.” (Read the whole story here.)
