Luke 7: 36-50

“How did he know everything I was thinking?”  That was the question asked to one of the lady’s in our church by the visitor with her today.  He (I don’t know his name) had just said to her a little while ago, “I can make more money in one week, selling drugs, then in a whole month on a regular job, but I have no peace.”  So when he walked into our church today and the pastor began to preach from Luke 7:36-50, he was amazed.  The last verse (50) says this, “And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.”  It would have been enough just to be forgiven, but the Lord gave this woman a special gift when He said, “Go in Peace”.  At one point in the sermon my husband stopped and said, “I don’t believe I am just preaching a sermon today.  Someone has come looking for peace.  This is where you find it….”  The man came to the altar and wept and wept before the Lord.  I didn’t know his story until after church, but when I heard it, it touched me deeply.  He has just been out of prison a few days and God allowed him to step into our church and hear the message he needed to hear. We serve such an awesome God and His mercy and grace never cease to amaze me.  God is so willing to forgive.  It doesn’t matter where you have come from, He still wants to forgive and He has plenty of mercy to be given.  His supply is not running low. I am looking forward to what God will do in this man’s life.  Yes!  There is a peace that passes all understanding and I’m thankful for it.

No one can touch you like Jesus can.  No one can give you peace you cannot understand.  No one can bind your wounds with nail scarred hands.  No one can touch you like Jesus can.
