This is for yesterday and today.
I actually got on to post last night and got so sleepy I didn’t! A body needs rest from time to time!
This week has been so busy with so many things. No need to list it all. I’d just be babbling–but hey, when am I not!?!
So, I won’t babble about that today, but some other stuff that has come into my head lately.
Earlier in the week, my early morning Bible reading was about the woman who washed Jesus’ feet with her tears and wiped them clean with her hair. What a honor she had in doing this!
Most people would cringe at the thought of touching others’ feet. I know one of my friends who gets sick just looking at feet. You have to admit, feet aren’t the best looking parts on our bodies most of the time. They are the most used pair of things on our body at times though. They get tired. They get worn. They get dirty …and crusty. Some sweat, some stink. Ew.
BUT SERIOUSLY, Jesus… This woman got to touch GOD! I think about the woman in the Bible who just touched a small part of his robe and was healed. How do you think this woman who took time to make Jesus feel comfortable and loved felt after being able to do such a deed? She was “a woman of ill-repute” as some translations say. However the translation uses words to describe her, she was not a woman that was thought to be good company to someone who was Godly–she was a ….sinner. She was a disgusting sinner to most of those in the room, but to Jesus, she was FORGIVEN. She was redeemed. She would be in Heaven with Him one day! She knew she needed to be forgive and humbled herself before the savior to not only show her knowledge of needing Him, but to somehow try and repay Him for His gift–maybe? (even though I know there’s no way we can repay what He did on the cross!) I’m not sure of her mindset, but I do know that what she did was sincere and amazing. Jesus said…
Luke 7:48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
He knew she believed in Him.
I’m a horrible sinner! I have done things that are not of God. I have worked for the evil one. I do things daily that I should not do. I want to move away from such things and closer to GOD. I want to touch God! I want to wash Jesus’ feet! I want to hear Jesus say the words He said to this woman who did this great thing for Jesus. I believe!
