Weight of Burden by Pastor John Kitterman – September 17, 2017 – Video Sermon

God will take the dumbest thing you’ve done and when your heart is broken before Him, allow that to become something awesome.  He makes it holy as you give it up.


Notes from the Sermon – Luke 7:36-50

Who are you in relationship with, the Law or with Jesus?

Change has to be on the inside.

The woman knew who she was in presence of and it undid her.  Do we always know?

Who do identify with, the Pharisee, the woman, or the others?

He peels back the layers of our hearts but we don’t find condemnation.

Get your heart right with Jesus, not the Law.

God will take the dumbest thing you’ve done and when your heart is broken before Him, allow that to become something awesome.  He makes it holy as you give it up.

If you want a holy life, come into contact with Jesus a whole bunch.

Are you chasing down Jesus?

He takes the junk in our lives and makes it holy when we submit it to Him.

There are times when you don’t know Jesus yet. He’s the Son of God.

Go without the weight of burden that you carried in. Go in peace without guilt. Go in peace without worry.

Keep going back to the foot of Jesus till you leave it there.

 

Luke 7: 36-50

36 When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume.38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

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.”

40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.”

“Tell me, teacher,” he said.

41 “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii,[a] and the other fifty. 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?”

43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”

“You have judged correctly,” Jesus said.

44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”

48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

50 Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
