“And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.”–Luke 7:37-38 As we search for a remedy for our cold hearts and dry eyes we would do well to listen to the words of Thomas Brooks who said: “The more a man apprehends of the love of God, and of the love of Christ – the more that person will grieve and mourn that he has offended, provoked, and grieved such a Father, and such a Son. The more clear and certain evidences a man has of the love and favor of God to his soul, the more that man will grieve and mourn for sinning against such a God. There is nothing which thaws and melts the heart, which softens and breaks the heart – like the warm beams of divine love — The more a man sees of the love of Christ, and the more a man tastes and enjoys of the love of Christ – the more that man will grieve and mourn for all the dishonors that he has done to Christ.” Looking unto Jesus, considering the marvel of His great love for such worthless sinners, is the remedy for the cold morbid state in which we often find ourselves. Get in His word, focus on Him and you will be transformed. The more the better.
