“When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, «If this man were a prophet, he would know what kind of woman is touching him. She’s a sinner!»”
Luke 7:39 NLT
How easy is often to pronounce judgment against others, label and rejected them by their past or immediate present; is hard for us to understand that Jesus does not reject a contrite and humbled heart.
Bother us and even we criticize, when we see that a repentant sinner comes to have a close fellowship with the Lord; relationship that may be even more personal and sincere than ours.
Seeing someone repented for his past should fill us with joy, that’s what God feels when a sinner comes to Him for forgiveness.
