for our own glory

Friday June 10th,  Luke 7: 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner."  If the Pharisee knew what kind of Prophet Jesus was, he would know who was touching his life, and why that nerve was so raw.  Jesus did know all he needed to know, all anyone needed to know, what kind of woman she was, one with a hurting heart that longed for forgiveness.  Jesus knew what kind of man the Pharisee was, a good man who thought he was good enough and wanted to impress his friends with his goodness by inviting Jesus over for dinner, showing just how open and liberal he was.  It would help him in his status.  Liberal or conservative, we are both capable of being cold hearted and calculating for our own glory.  Liberal or conservative, we are both saved by the grace of God.
