Jesus met the woman by the well who had married so many men and was living with another one who wasn’t even her husband John 4:18 Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”.Let us not forget the fact that she met Jesus ALONE. Nobody was there with them to hear her CONFESSIONS AND REPENTANCE.
A sinful woman in the town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house. So she brought an alabaster jar of perfume and broke it for Jesus joyously. And some people could not understand why. Then Jesus turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? When I came into your house, you gave me no water for my feet, but she washed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. You gave me no kiss of greeting, but she has been kissing my feet since I came in. You did not put oil on my head, but she poured perfume on my feet. I tell you that her many sins are forgiven, so she showed great love. But the person who is forgiven only a little will love only a little.” Then Jesus said to her,“Your sins are forgiven.”
The people sitting at the table began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” Jesus said to the woman,“Because you believed, you are saved from your sins. Go in peace.
Oh! I have not forgotten Rehab the harlot. Tamar, a widow of Er and Onan plays the prostitute to get pregnant by her father-in-law Judah. Again this prostitutes are honored by being in the lineage of Jesus” You don’t know why God asked Hosea to marry a prostitute, Hosea 1:2 When the Lord first spoke to Hosea, the Lord told him, “Marry a prostitute and have children with that prostitute. The people in this land have acted like prostitutes and abandoned the Lord.” 3 So Hosea married Gomer, daughter of Diblaim. She became PREGNANT and had a SON.
God’s ways are not man’s way. What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, “Son, go and work today in the vineyard ‘“I will not,” he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. ‘Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, “I will, sir,” but he did not go. ‘Which of the two did what his father wanted?’ The first,’ they answered. Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him. Let God be true and every man a liar.
Matthew 12:23-32. Don’t let your condemnation, backbiting, name calling stop sinners from coming to Christ. His Grace and Mercy still speaks. Brothers and sisters, Come to Jesus Christ with a repentant heart and He will forgive you ALL your sins. Jesus loves you.
