Bible Commentary for Luke 7:49

Wesley's Notes for Luke 7:49


7:47 Those many sins of hers are forgiven; therefore she loveth much - The fruit of her having had much forgiven. It should carefully be observed here, that her love is mentioned as the effect and evidence, not the cause of her pardon. She knew that much had been forgiven her, and therefore she loved much.

7:50 Thy faith hath saved thee - Not thy love. Love is salvation.
