There was one. however, who fully appreciated ins renl worth, a womnn of the street who had doubtless seen him nter or else nlitervod him nt mont through the open doorway. Knowing him Is one thing, hut to love hlm Is (puto nn other. Do not confound this woman with Mary Magdalene, there Is no ron nrctlon nt nil. Jrnus always drew to himself the sinful ones: It was for tlint purpose ho cnnic Into the world. lo hear our sins (Matt. 1-21: isa 53:6). This womnn was, however, n sinner who no loncer ran after her sin, hut one who was recntnnt. This Is shown by (11 her sorrow (weep ing): (2) her humble service (wlplr.e his feet), nnd 13) hrr plfl of love (Ihc nlnbnsler box), this latter having un douhtrdly been nn accessory of her life of sin, hut now devoted lo n more noble use, As the odor filled the house the self-sntlsded Pharisee spake "within himself." Inn he who discern eth the thoughts nnd Intents of the heart knew not only how great n sin nrr slut hnd been, but knew nlso the rloak of self-rlghteonsnes worn by Simon, Her purity and holiness hnd boon shnttrrod like the oUhnsler box nnd Jesus proceeds In shatter Simon's shell of self complncency by putting forth one of his mntohless parables.

The I'lmrl see's reply wns the logical one; they both depend upon the mercy of the creditor, hence the gratitude will W In ratio to the nniount forgiven. Much had been required, hence much for slven Jesus Immediately turns the Pharisee': answer to n practical nppll cntlon Tnklnc the words nut of Simon's mouth he innlles one of th most complete nnd practical tippMeii tlons of npplled Christianity In the gospel record. To pnrnphrnso Jes-is says: "Simon, I came Into your rouse nnd tho most common rnnrtesv ol wnshlng n guest's feel yon neglected yet this woman hns washed inv f'-t with her tears, nn evidence of her le pentnnce, while you sit there with dry eyed cynicism She has wiped my feet with the halls of her head her glory nnd crown hns been laid nt my feet while you have not so much ns offered mo n towel to wipe the dust olf my feet ns I left toy sandals nt your door Simon yon gavo me no kiss, Unit common mnrk of n courteous welcome, yet this womnn has not censed lo kiss my feel shire the time I enme Into your house The nnnolnt Ing nil, common olive oil, you neslect i d lo use, yet tho precious oil of her treaHiiro she has thankfully poured upon my feet Simon, your life Is life of works so nre these nets of this womnn, but your life Is one of zeal whllo her nets have been prompted by love." In nnother plnce. Jesus tells us thnt If we love him wo will do the thlni: he commands us and thnt he nnd the Knthcr will come nnd nhldo with us, Hers was the heroic love of nno who having lost her slinmo dared to thrust herself Into an unhidden house of re freshment nnd perform thoso neglect ed menial duties, the result of which wns that reward for her fnlth thnt meant forgiveness of her sins. Jly her nttentlon to these duties she wan unconsciously rebuking the vanity Simon's self merit while nt the snmo time she wns nhowlng to the world fine examplo of the gratitude of saved one. Pnul later expressed most forcefully In the fourth chapter or Ida letter to the Romans. The Great Creditor. This woman knew she hnd no merit of her own end hence she threw her self at the feet of Jesus, clnlmed his righteousness nnd compassion and the Bame time by her acts she showed the attitude of her heart nnd of course she had the desire of her heart. has always been so for has not the Master said, "Happy are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be fed?" After this "practical sermon of an piled Christianity" to Simon, Jesus turns to the woman, namelesa so far ns the Scripture record la concerned and with Infinite and a heavenly thrill In his voice hn said: "Thy faith hath saved thee, go In peace." "Who li the creator," they asked. Jesus teaches us that though there he degrees of guilt, all alike must come to nnd for forgiveness. Also that bo, the (Ireat Creator, la the one to whom we owe our debt of sins and who alone can without merit dis charge that debt and send us forth In peace. For Sale A good Carriage.
