“Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.”
She was aware of her condition.
She was a sinner.
She wept over her sin at the feet of the Saviour.
“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.”
Her weeping turned to worship.
“Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”
Christ forgave her sins when she came to Him.
The Woman In The City also serves as an example of how Christ is ready and willing to forgive our sins if only we will come to Him.
We are all sinners in need of a Saviour.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Once we have trusted Christ, we become sinners saved by grace.
God sees us through the blood of His Son.
“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”
It is His righteousness that we are given, not our own.
