Day 28: Unleashed


Once upon a time

they were defined not be a name

but a label

yet

JESUS

sees behind the label.

JESUS sees her at the well~

the one whose name is SAMARITAN woman who had 5 husbands & now a plus one.

JESUS SEES her & talks to her,

not taking a drink of water but giving one to her~

"but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life" (John 14:13)

HE clothes her with forgiveness & favor,

& she walks away with dignity.

And the woman whose name is SICK WOMAN with the bleeding issue.

JESUS SEES her because she touched HIM,

& HE heals her

clothing her with favor & giving her a new name of daughter.

And she walks away with dignity~

“Daughter you faith has healed you. Go in peace” (Luke 8:48).

And the one whose name is CAUGHT IN ADULTERY.

JESUS SEES her in the midst of her guilt.

And HE clothes her with favor

“Then neither do I condemn you,” JESUS declared. “Go now & leave your life of sin.” (John 8:11)

And she walks away with dignity

And the one whose name is THE CRIPPLED for eighteen years

JESUS SEES her & tells her to come.

And HE clothes her with favor

. “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” Then HE put HIS hands on her…"

And she walks away with dignity

"...and immediately she straightened up & praised GOD" (Luke 13:11-13)

And the one whose name is THE SINFUL WOMAN who anointed JESUS' feet

JESUS SEES her the moment HE feels her hair wipe her tears from HIS feet & cleans them with perfume in the alabaster jar.

HE clothes her with favor

"Then JESUS said to the woman, 'Your sins are forgiven'... And JESUS said to the woman,

'Your faith has saved you; go in peace'.” (Luke 7:48, 50)

And she walks away with dignity.

And you the one who is labeled as

_________.

And HE SEES you

And HE TALKS to you.

And HE FEELS your heart

And HE clothes you with forgiveness &favor.

And you walk away with dignity.

Because that is who JESUS is & that is who you are~

"She is clothed with strength & dignity & laughs without fear of the future" (Proverbs 31:25)

But what if the labeled women walked away

as

a wife of many, sick, adulterous crippled, and a sinner?

But they didn't

because

they owned their new identity.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

So I ask you~

are you a label or

"WHO YOU SAY I AM" (listen to the song below)
