Desires|for SIGNIFICANCE (A Rabbi, Prostitute & Jesus in Luke 7)

December 4, 2011

(Luke 7:36-50) In the search for significance and meaning we stray far from our God intended order (Gen 1) because we are inherently sinful (Gen 3). Rather than seeking our significance in God who created us, we seek to be gods and find significance on our own. In Luke 7 a sinful woman lays down her source of significance at Jesus’ feet while he is the guest of a Rabbi. The Rabbi who hosts the dinner party cannot see that he is seeking to be his own Lord & Savior and will not acknowledge who Jesus is.
