GRACE APPRECIATED

Remember the woman who came into the house of Simon the Pharisee, where a banquet was being held in honor of Jesus (Luke 7:36 – 50)? Remember how she wept and washed His feet with the tears that fell from her eyes, and how she kissed them and dried them with her hair? How she also took an expensive box of ointment and anointed His precious feet? That my dear friend was a manifestation of a sinner’s appreciation of grace.
The forgiveness of sins, “which were many” said our Savior, caused her to “love much” and show great appreciation. Legal forms and law restraint cannot produce that. As we observe in the Pharisee, law could only produce self-righteous complaint and criticism: “If He were a prophet, He would have known what manner of woman this is that toucheth Him, for she is a sinner.” Jesus did know that she was a sinner; the blessed thing is He caused her to know that she was a sinner and grace brought her and the Savior together. The sad thing is that Simon knew not that he was sinner, and law-works kept him from the Savior.
The law of God has one purpose and one only in the work of salvation and that is to work an overwhelming guilt in the heart. The law (“Ten Commandments”) and keeping it never ever saved the first sinner. If it is properly preached and applied, I believe that it will convict of sin and drive one to the Savior.
The apostle Paul testifies to this in the letter to the Church at Rome in chapter seven of his epistle. “What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said; ‘You shall not covet.’ But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of covetousness. Apart from the law, sin lies dead. I was once alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin came alive and I died. The very commandment that promised life proved to be death to me. For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment deceived me and through it killed me. So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good. … For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold under sin.”
The question is, do you know that you are a sinner sold under sin and that you have hope alone in Christ? My encouragement to you if you find yourself in such a case cast yourself at the feet of Sovereign Mercy and plea for the blood He shed on Calvary’s cross to wash your sins away.
