The Highest Worship


Based on the the woman who anointed Jesus' feet (Luke 7:36ff):

The story in this passage shows what Christ calls "love." The woman came with the opinion that forgiveness of sins should be sought in Christ. This worship is the highest worship of Christ. She could think nothing greater about Christ. To seek forgiveness of sins from Him was truly to acknowledge the Messiah. To think of Christ this way, to worship Him this way, is truly to believe.
From The Apology of the Augsburg Confession, III.33
