Luke 7:36-50 The Pharisee and the Sinner (On Washing Jesus' Feet)

Leadership, hospitality and worship: 
What do you expect from the church when you think about those words.  
What are you looking for when you look to the church? 
Does that line-up with what God values?

Jesus knows the thoughts of His host Simon the Pharisee.  
God knows the ponderings of our hearts; 
and He still loves us and speaks the truth to us.

"Who is this, who even forgives sins?"
Isaiah 53 shares the description of the suffering servant:
"Stricken for the transgression of My people"
It is because of this that Jesus is able to say in 
Luke chapter 7: "Your sins are forgiven."

Simon the Pharisee, forgiven little, loves little.  
The sinful woman knows how deeply she needs a savior.  
But we all face the same deep need, 
whether we know it or not.  
Worship reflects how much we recognise our deep need 
and God's great provision.
