Wiping His Feet

How can I respond to the love that put Christ on the cross? The love He shows me everyday as I picture my sins like dirt on my feet that He gently washes away?

I want to be the one kneeling on the floor, like the woman who washed His feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. She was perceived as shameful. What does the world see as shameful and ridiculous today? Admitting my wrongs through confession and repentance. Making meals, cleaning up, pouring out my time to discipline, train, instruct, and laugh with my children. Claiming no identity but being His daughter.

Lord, would you help me to picture each of these acts, each confession of my need for You as a way to wipe Your feet with my hair?

And it is precious to You. (Luke 7:36-50)

Episode 48: Luke 7 Jesus Heals, Raises the Dead, and Forgives

In this episode, I share from Luke when Jesus heals the Roman commander’s servant, raises a widow’s son, and forgives a woman who poured perfume on his feet, and how God invites us to see how much we need Him and trust Him to take care of us.

Discussion with your kids: Share with each other one person you’d like to imagine leading by the hand to God’s throne. Pray that they could know His love for them, just as if He’d scooped them up into His arms and put them on His lap.
