New Wine - Day 24

At His Feet

Luke 10:38-42  “38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.  40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,
42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.””

"At His Feet."  This has been my desire for decades. It is how I sign all of my emails.  This is, by His grace, the posture I have chosen for the direction of my heart, mind, and will.  For sure, I have not done it perfectly but it is the intent of my life.
Many years ago, when I was a youth pastor, God brought a team of spiritual leaders into my life who turned out to be critical in my discipleship to Jesus.  They really helped me major in the major things and to not focus on the minor things.  I discovered I was trying to do a lot of things for Jesus but not many things with Jesus.  Did you catch that?  I was doing many things "for" Jesus, but not many things "with" Jesus.  I wasn't paying attention to what Jesus and I were doing together in my personal life or professional life.
Sure I was trying to live for Him, honor Him, and obey Him, but I was missing out on His transforming presence in my life and enjoying His company in all He was inviting me to be and do with Him.
The wonderful thing about living at the feet of Jesus is it is an internal posture of the heart, mind, and will which greatly impacts my posture in my outer life which everyone else around me sees. And, no one . . . absolutely no one has enough power to ever remove me from the feet of Jesus!
When followers of Jesus are martyred and imprisoned, their life testifies to the internal posture they have chosen for their life.  No matter the torture they may face, they show they have chosen to live their life at His feet no matter what.

  1. Would you like to take this moment to let Jesus know you would like to receive His invitation to spend the rest of your life at His feet?  If so, tell Him now.
  2.  What do you think about the fact that nothing can separate you from living the rest of your life at Jesus’ feet?
3. What feelings are surfacing for you in this moment?

Thank you so very much for this clarification.

I LOVE this and it is also my intention to spend the rest of my life, both now and eternal, at the feet of Jesus, learning from, living with, and worshipping my Lord and Savior ✝️🙏🛐
