JESUS: THE SINNERS' FRIEND

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...’ – Luke 7 vs 37

Hello Dearly Beloved in the Blessed LORD JESUS. I Am convinced even by the Holy Ghost that somebody reading this Article will be Lifted in His Heart and Mind, and will come to Love the LORD JESUS. Be Blessed as you read. AMEN.

Our opening passage is an inspiring portion of the Bible. A woman (which was a sinner), when she knew that JESUS was at that place, came to HIM. She was a sinner. And I began to wonder, never a time did we read in the Bible that sinners came to the Pharisees nor to the Scribes, nor to the Sadducess, neither did we read that sinners came to the Priests. Uhmmm, really?, but not JESUS! Let’s see what this woman was described to be in the verse 39;

‘Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.’ – {KJV}

You see that? straigth up she was judged by that Pharisee, He said ‘for she is a sinner’. That means her ordeals may have been known to the man before that time, therefore He was displeased that she came close to JESUS or even touched HIM. Wait a minute, did you notice something? did you notice something about the character of religious men from this passage? they despise people, they are quick to condemn people, they paint themselves as better over others, but not JESUS! even though HE is the King of Glory! - Selah. JESUS condemns none - and this characteristics of the LORD was made known about the scenario in John 8 vs 3 - 11, I like us to see the verse 11;

She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.’ – {KJV}

Here we see the LORD given to a certain woman Favour she doesn’t deserve. She was caught in the very act of adultery, therefore according to the Law of Moses she should be killed. {Deuteronomy 22 vs 22}, but the LORD condemned her not, that means HE didn’t see her based on Her sin. Uhmmm, what a Savior HE is. - Selah. So here we see men again condemning a sinner, but not the LORD JESUS. AMEN. Praise GOD forever! You see, in such a world where even sinners condemn sinners, men condemn men even when they themselves are not perfect, no one cares about your pain, how you feel; who then is the sinners’ friend? JESUS! JESUS!! JESUS!!! HE is JESUS! HIS Name is JESUS! Hallelujah! Praise GOD! Looking at our opening passage, the woman did not run to the house because the Pharisee was there, no, but because JESUS was there. Men (sinners) were scared of their religious leaders because should they know of their sins, it will not go well with them, but not with JESUS! They came to JESUS knowing that they will not be condemned, instead they will be talked out of their burdens and sorrows by the LORD. Not only did the sinners come to JESUS, JESUS went to the sinners, sat amongst them, dinned with them, insomuch that the Pharisees and the elders murmured against HIM. See this;

‘The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.’ - Matthew 11 vs 19 {KJV

You see that? Those were names HE was called because of HIS Love for the sinners. They called HIM a friend of publicans (fraudsters) and sinners.

Listen to me, people because of ignorance run from the ONE who actually is their best friend in their current situation. People run from JESUS when they sin or because of their sins; many think JESUS is angry with them because they keep making same mistakes, hence because of that false knowledge of GOD, they feel disconnected from GOD. But Beloved, let this TRUTH I share with you break that wall of separation between you and your best friend JESUS! See JESUS! HE is the one you should be talking to right now! O you committed a murder? HE is the one you should run to and lie at HIS feet just like that woman did when she heard JESUS was at that certain man’s house. The LORD Loves you more than you currently know about, and that is why this WORD is coming to you now that you may know of HIS Love and HIS Person; HE condemns none!

JESUS is the sinners’ friend. Don’t worry that people despise you, condemn you or don’t see anything good in you, why worry? when JESUS Loves you just as you are and never condemns you neither does HE disconnect HIMSELF from you. Therefore why should you care about men’s judgement of you? Why not Love the LORD today even right now, worship HIM, lift up those hands that HE has made Holy and say "LORD I Thank You for everything." Come’on.

GOD Bless You.
