Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - January 11, 1958, Florence, South CarolinaPage. 2 Corner pulpit by Ronald a Cottle pastor first Assembly it Florence text thou invest me in kiss but this woman since Tiv time i came in hath not a ease to kiss my Luke the reference Here is to a Beautiful Story of Devotion that con Corning the woman with the Ala Baster Box of ointment of Luke s seventh chapter. One comments Tor gave this paraphrase of Thi text thou gravest me no kiss o respect upon entering to which As a rabbi. I was certainly entitled she hath repeatedly kissed my this Story proves to to a Case of Price is. Humility duty is. De Votion and love of self is. Lovo of Christ. Jesus by Cottle his words contrasts Simon the socialite Pharisee and the devoted sinner la. Who gave her Best to him. The holy kiss dating from our lord s own limes was an expression of reverence love ant adoration especially to a Grea spiritual Leader. This kiss became the Mark and badge of Christ s disciples. Still they Greet each other with looks words and deeds of godly love. I. There is n vast difference Between formal and spiritual worship. Let. Us closely examine our Story is. 36-50 after the services of the Day Simon being a prominent Citi zen invited Jesus to his Home for the afternoon meal. Upon his arrival the master teacher found a Cool formal reception no Basin of Waler for the customary Wash ing of a rabbi s feet and no kiss of respect and Welcome from Simon All to which he was customarily entitled. However after the meal the door of Simon s palatial Home swung open and in rushed a woman of the City which was a sinner is. .37. In her hand she clutched a Box. From her eyes Flowers tears of repentant sorrow with which she washed his feet wiping them with the hair of her head and kissing n. Christ observed Simon s omissions in sen ice. As a Mark of Dutiful service Simon gave a feast and invited the Prophet into his Home. But there was no kiss in his service no real love or affection toward the lord. Now what Simon did was Good but he did not go far enough. All of us would do Well to remember that we Are judged by our omissions As Well As our commissions in service. Duty is a wonderful word but Devotion is a better one. We May physically Render service after service and still fail. Duty void of Newtion Creed without Christ service without salvation will culminate in defeat. It Well May be called christianity without the or. Christ values our service by our love and our motive. First corinthians 13 1-3 says that without love Charity the voice of Angels All prophecy knowledge Faith and sacrificial service even to the Point of death profiet me there Are some five talented Folk among us. See Matthew 25 15-30 but most of us Are two and one talented it is natural that the lord should expect More from those who Are capable of giving More and less from those who have less to of Fer. Actually i suppose this is the Case however in one sense god demands the same from All of us and that is our Best. It is not How much we Are capable of doing for him or of giving to him not How much we Are Cap Able of doing for him or of giving to him. But it is rather How much love and pure motive there is in our hearts to drive us to Christian activity. The love motive is the supreme matter in question. In. It is a rare sight to see a real biblical the sight before the household and guests of Simon that Day was rare enough for Jesus to exclaim Seest thou this Wom is. 44i she gave i deeply repentant the Florence morning news Florence s.
