The Feet of Christ: Where Mary Sat
“And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’s feet and heard His word.”
How would you react if Jesus walked into your home? Would you be able to control the trembling excitement at the sound of the Lord’s voice? Would you be able to put all your cares away and just sit at His feet? I can’t help but smile at the thought! Just think about being at the feet that brought God’s blessings to mankind and carried the weight of that cross every step to Calvary. When Jesus came to her home, Mary was willing to set aside all her worries and simply sit at the feet of Jesus.
As we sit at His feet we should remember how small we are. Compared to Him, the Most High, we are truly smaller than dust. We should approach Him with humbled hearts, sit at His feet, and look up at Him with adoration fresh perspective to the One who is loved us. Despite His mighty position, He came down to our level to see us as brothers and to sympathize with all our weaknesses!
That connection from God to man is illustrated when we look at those precious feet. The Bible says that a body was prepared for a willing Servant, whose name would be called “God with us”. He was indeed God with us! Those feet carried Him to every town in Israel so that everyone could know that God was with them. Yet, He endured much along way, and even today His feet show the pain and rejection that He endured on the Cross!
Paul writes, “I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that day.” Before leaping about to “do”, let’s sit at the Savior’s feet and get to know Him. Like Paul, like Mary, we will grow to love and trust our Lord more as we get to know Him better.
