#23 We owe Him a great debt

“Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.” (Luke 7v41 NIV)

We owe God everything.

We owe Him a huge debt.

One we can never repay.

How big is that debt to you?

Do you think that life owes you something.

Do you believe that God owes you something?

Ask Him to make you aware of what He has done for you.

It will make you humble.

Humble yourself before Him.

As you allow the Holy Spirit to make you aware of the debt you owe, respond by thanking Him.

Find ten things to thank Him for, even if you struggle to find anything.

There is always something to thank Him for.

Use real words not religious jargon.

Do it every day, not just once.

Be a thankful person.

Practice making it your default.

#22 Let your heart be full

Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. (Luke 7v40 NIV)

Jesus, in all this, didn’t speak to her but spoke to Simon the Pharisee. 

He was less concerned for her than He was for Simon. 

He knew she understood.

People may make a mess of their lives in lots of ways, but He will look straight at you and talk to your heart. 

Simon was at least willing to listen, but I suspect he wasn’t going to like what he was about to hear. 

Do not think that your status will carry any weight or influence with God. 

When He speaks you need to listen whether you like what He is about to say or not.

What you do about it is up to you entirely. 

Be humble and submit yourself to Him. 

Acknowledge that He is right (He always is anyway).

What is God speaking to you about?

Ask Him what your heart is like.

Your heart is very important to Him, far more than your actions and more than the sum of your successes or failures. 

Write down anything He shows you, what is good and what needs some work on. 

Writing it down helps to clarify.

Let your heart be full of love for Him.

#21 Fill your head with His thoughts

When the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, He would know who is touching Him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.” (Luke 7v39 NIV)

We judge people externally and believe some are more deserving than others. 

What He looks for is on the inside. 

We judge only what we can see and hear externally. 

He is often never that impressed with our version of righteousness. 

What criteria do you judge people on?

Now ask Him how He sees people.

When you ask Him what He sees in people, take note of what He says. 

He will describe them quite different to how you do. 

Ask Him about specific people and see what He says and compare with your opinion of them. 

Then change your attitude and have His thoughts instead.

See the gold in people not just their faults.

Entertain His thoughts only.

#20 Wipe His feet with your tears

As she stood behind Him at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. (Luke 7v38 NIV)

This is such an intimate sight.

Notice that Jesus didn’t try to stop her.

He didn’t flinch or recoil even though He knew what kind of lifestyle she led.

There were no words, just an act of worship.

She was emotional but that emotion was directed towards Him.

He lay there as her tears wet His feet.

Imagine that.

He didn’t move while she then wiped His feet with her hair.

He didn’t reject her as she then proceeded to kiss His feet.

Neither will He reject you, no matter what you’ve done or are doing.

She then poured this very expensive perfume on Him.

How much do you love Him?

Are you willing to show your affection for Him before others, or is that a barrier to you?

What are you willing to do for Him?

What are you not willing to do?

Be honest and realistic in your answers.

It doesn’t mean that a poor response is the end of it.

Quite the opposite; it is the start…

Repentance starts with a recognition of where you are at.

It isn’t about saying sorry.

Just recognising your need and embracing Him.

He can do a lot with that.

It is called being humble.

You may not be perfect but He loves you perfectly.

#19 You have something of value

A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. (Luke 7v37 NIV)

Here was a brilliant example demonstrating that Jesus was comfortable with everyone. 

He is never shocked or surprised. 

He was in the house of a Pharisee and a prostitute walks in. 

Imagine that. 

The Pharisee was the pillar of society, separated from the average person. 

Because we can’t fully appreciate the position and role of a Pharisee in that culture, the sheer audacity is lost on us somewhat.

The woman was bold enough to approach Jesus, especially in the house of a Pharisee. 

Don’t you ever let anyone tell you, you can’t approach Jesus. 

Don’t be intimidated.

Don’t talk yourself out of doing that. 

You may feel unworthy. 

Good; but don’t let it stop you. 

Approach Him and you will find that no matter what you have done, He will do nothing but love you. 

He won’t ever reject you. 

The greatest tragedy is to reject His love for you. 

Don’t believe the lie that He doesn’t care about you. 

This woman brought what she had, possibly all she had. Bring whatever you have and He will accept it.

What have you got that you can offer to Him?

Ask Him what He wants you to do with what you have.

Write down 5 things that you have in your capacity, that you can do. 

Then ask Him what He wants you to do today, this week with what you have. 

You have something of value because you are of value.

#18 Who do you think you are?

When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, He went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. (Luke 7v36 NIV)

Jesus did not show favouritism nor did He reject people because of their beliefs. 

He was comfortable with everyone and loved everyone, even though some wanted to silence Him and kill Him.

Do you accept everyone in the same way?

Recognise when you show favouritism.

Look at who you talk to and spend time with. 

Is it only with those who like you or make you feel good? 

Make a list of five people you know, but don’t really know well. 

Make it your mission to get to know them better.

Go for a coffee or invite them for a meal or go for a walk together. 

You are so loved for who you are, not what you are.

#17 People are so lucky to meet you

“Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.” (Mark 14v9 NIV)

People will know you and be blessed because of you.

Make it your aim to show them His love, so that when they meet you, they meet Him.

He wants all of you, not just bits of you.

You already have all of Him.

You are made to be a blessing.

How are you going to be a blessing to people today?

Find ways to express His love today; it is harder not to.

Surrender everything to Him.

Make a list.

Write down what you are willing to surrender to Him.

Be honest (He will not be fooled).

You can always add to it over the next few days, weeks, months and years.

You are a blessing to people.

#16 Let Him be the measure of you

She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial. (Mark 14v8 NIV)

Do what you can, do not measure yourself against anyone else.

Do not beat yourself up, but rather accept His forgiveness for what it is.

Unite yourself with Him and love Him with all your heart; nothing else really matters.

If you compare yourself to others, stop it.

Do you feel as if you let Him down, disappoint Him or underachieve?

Remember that you did nothing to earn His love.

Ask Him what He thinks about you.

Ask Him how He feels about you.

Ask Him what He wants you to do, today and in the future.

Write down what He wants you to do.

Find out what pleases Him.

You are a pleasure and delight to Him.

#15 The main thing

“The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me.” (Mark 14v7 NIV)

Make Him the main thing in your life.

Worship Him: not your desperate efforts to please Him.

Self worship is when you put yourself before Him.

When your feelings have greater value than His Presence.

Love Him first before you even try to love others.

This is so you can truly show His kind of love.

Check if He really is the most important thing in your life.

Do your feelings dictate whether you want to spend time with Him or not?

If they do, then you are putting feelings before Him.

This is not going to end well.

Be honest with yourself and be realistic.

Your depth of your relationship with God is up to you, but it is on His terms.

If you love Him, you won’t be able to get enough of Him.

If you don’t love Him deeply, you won’t make time for Him.

He won’t be your priority.

#14 He enjoys yours your presence

“Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.” (Mark 14v6 NIV)

He loves it when you give Him your attention and devotion.

He loves to spend time with you.

He loves it when you seek His Presence.

He loves being in your presence.

Let Him into your heart and let His love fill you.

He is for you, no matter how much people criticise you.

Your adversary will be speechless.

The only thing that matters is what He thinks about you.

Aim to enjoy spending time with Him alone.

You can’t spend too much time with Him.

Talk to Him and listen to what He has to say.

Find half an hour each day to be alone with Him.

Talk to Him about stuff that is going on.

Listen to what He has to say.

When He tells you what is on His heart, take it seriously.

He is telling you for a reason.

Write it down somewhere safe and look at it again and again.

Do you know how much He loves listening and talking to you?

Make it a priority to find out.
