She Loved Much

She washed Jesus feet with her tears,
and wiped them gently with her hair.
She poured precious ointment from an alabaster box,
anointing the Lord, before all those standing there.
Though Jesus said, “She hath wrought a good work on me,”
She knew she could never give enough,
for her sins, which were many, he’d forgiven.
She owed so much………….and she loved much
Though they were many, he forgave all my sins.
All my love can never be enough.
How I long to hear from my Saviour dear,
“She loved much; yes, she loved much.”
She sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word,
and left her sister serving there.
She shared precious moments in the presence of her Lord;
a place at his feet, so much more than she deserved.
Though Jesus said, “She hath chosen that good part,”
She knew she could never give enough,
For her sins, which were many, he’d forgiven.
She owed so much………...and she loved much.
Though they were many, he forgave all my sins.
All my love can never be enough.
How I long to hear from my Saviour dear,
“She loved much; yes, she loved much.”

I read these accounts....of the woman washing Jesus' feet with her tears, of the woman sitting at Jesus' feet..... and imagine how wonderful it must have been to be in the presence of Jesus; to sit at his feet, and to hear him speak. But then I realize that I have that same privilege. I may not be physically in the presence of the Lord, but I can still sit at his feet in worship, I can still hear him speak through his word, and I can show my love for him by serving him until the day I see him face to face. Oh to hear those words, “She loved much.”!

Luke 7:37,38 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, 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 annointed them with the ointment.

Mark 14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? She hath wrought a good work on me.
Luke 7:47 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.

Luke 10:38,39,40a,41,42 Now it came to pass, as they went, that they entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, And Jesus said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
