Jesus Anointed by Sinful Woman

The dramatic story told in Luke 7:36-50 illustrates the heart of true worship - when my overwhelming sense of my own sin comes into the presence of mercy. The woman was drawn to mercy - she offered what she had: her past, a little perfume, her tears, her hair. The intersection of my sin and God’s mercy is the place of worship. The cross is where my sin and God’s mercy meet.
