How much have you been forgiven?

“But he who has been forgiven little loves little.” Luke 7:47

Jesus told Simon a story of two men who each owed a moneylender a debt. One owed a little while the other owed a lot, both had their debts cancelled and Jesus asked Simon, “Now which of them will love him more?” Simon responded, “The one who had the bigger debt cancelled.” Jesus concludes the conversation with Simon by saying, “But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”

How much have we been forgiven? Little or much?

Living in a fallen world and mixing with sinners every day it becomes easy to take sin for granted. We tend to think of sin in terms of murder, theft or immorality. We tend to measure sin by how badly it affects other people when we should measure sin by how badly it affects God. Luther felt that if the greatest commandment was to love God with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our soul and with all our strength and to love our neighbour as ourselves, than the greatest sin was to fail to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and to fail to love our neighbour as ourselves.

Realizing how much we have been forgiven, leaves us feeling overwhelmed with gratitude for all God has done for us and continues to do for us each day. If we remember we have been forgiven much we will love much.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
