A pretty young girl ran away from her dirty boss, crying.  He suggested sex with her as her payment for some days of vacation she had requested.  Fortunately she refused.

I couldn´t help her as it all happened out there in the far east.  I encouraged her to take it to Christ, our faithful Savior who has saved and restored many other young girls in a much worse condition.  The outcome of this particular story I don´t know about yet.
In the loving company of Jesus there happened to be "certain women" (Luke 8:2) with a sad and evil past, but now, fully restored, they gladly served Him.  Praise God!  This still happens today!

A young girl prayed, "Lord, please find me, for I can´t even find myself!"  A prayer like that the Lord is more than pleased to listen to.

We read about one of the Lord´s new disciples, a crying woman, who openly loved the Lord so much because much sin in her immoral life had been forgiven.  She´d now become a new person full of new love.  A similar case if the Samarian woman in Sychar presented to us in John 4.  A wonderful, moving story.

A friend of mine said, "If I be assigned to produce a movie about her, the closing scene would be the "left waterpot" (John 4:28), standing there alone while she went on to tell others what the Lord Jesus had done to her life."  I found my friend´s idea very good.

"Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did.  Could this be the Christ?"  (John 4:29), she said.  Her thankful heart was full of love, a new, divine love, that loved much, since much had been forgiven. I always like to be around such Christians, don´t you?

Despite the fact that I was only 14 years old when Christ became my Savior, I still remember with shame the many evil things sin did to my life before I met Him.  The more I think about it the more I love the gospel news saying that "where sin abounded, grace abounded much more" (Rom. 5:20).

I love to be in the same room as  Christians who love because they had got much forgiven.  In fact this is the company I prefer most.
