At Your Feet ~ Natalie Grant

Luke 7:43-47 (MSG) ……."That's right," said Jesus. Then turning to the woman, but speaking to Simon, he said, "Do you see this woman? I came to your home; you provided no water for my feet, but she rained tears on my feet and dried them with her hair. You gave me no greeting, but from the time I arrived she hasn't quit kissing my feet. You provided nothing for freshening up, but she has soothed my feet with perfume. Impressive, isn't it? She was forgiven many, many sins, and so she is very, very grateful. If the forgiveness is minimal, the gratitude is minimal."

As you read this, could you almost imagine how the scenario went… Jesus is in Simon, the Pharisee's home. They are discussing important matters and along comes this woman. Everyone is familiar with her background, she has lived an immoral life. Jesus knew it too. But He saw beyond what the others could see. He saw a hurting, broken woman who had looked for love in all the wrong places and found nothing but pain.

She had heard much about Jesus and had possibly followed Him, along with the crowds of people, and seen Him do many miracles.

But the miracles hadn't touched her like love and compassion she saw in Jesus face. He was kind to everyone, no matter what their status in life! She had an unexplainable, irresistible urge from deep within to do something for Him. Anything just to be in His presence.

She knew what she must do, it didn't matter what others would say. People never had anything good to say about her anyway.

She yearned to feel a pure love. She felt so empty, used up by this world…men used her, women turned away from her. She had chosen the wrong path in life but couldn't get off this horrible, dark road. It seemed she had no hope…that is until…until Jesus crossed her path.
