8. Mercy of Christ.

"Your faith has saved you; go in peace." (Luke 7:50)These words were probably said to Mary (called Magdalene) from Magdala because Luke narrated her story just before introducing her by name in the very next chapter (8:2). As Jesus travelled from Capernaum (Luke 7:1) to Nain (7:11), he went through a town the Bible doesn't name but probably Magdala, as it was along the way. 'When a woman who HAD lived a sinful life in that town, heard that Jesus was eating at a Pharisee's house, she brought a jar of perfume and stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair and kissed them and poured perfume on them.'(Luke 8:37-38) She had a previous encounter with Christ that changed her life and now she came back to show her love. She was caught in adultery at Jerusalem and brought to Jesus to be stoned but none of her accusers could condemn her. "Then neither do I condemn you", Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."(John 8:11) Let's not forget the mercy he showed us and come back to show our love. "Therefore,I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven - for she loved much." (Luke 7:47)
