This has got to be one of the most beautiful pictures of worship that I can think of in the bible! I love this story! This story is in every one of the gospels and when I say that I mean, the book of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Each gives a little more detail about the story. This woman was considered to be an immoral woman, known as a prostitute, looked down upon and considered a sinner! The amazing thing though is that, she, aside from everyone else around really got a true picture of who Jesus was and desired to worship Him and humble herself before Him because she knew what He was capable of. He was the one who could remove her scars, who could wipe her sin away and could look past her past and see something more in her. She got enough courage to enter a house full of men, a Pharisee's house at that and carry herself, even through all the accusations and the harsh things that were said she kept on with her eyes on Jesus, to get "At His Feet", to pour her love, her praise back on Him! What a beautiful picture!! Jesus is so worthy of our praise and our worship and deserves so much more than we can even give. I can't begin to have enough words to thank Him for what He saved me from.
I'll never forget the day Jesus turned my life around! I was always raised in church, come from a whole family line of preachers and teachers of the bible and was filled with scripture and grew up singing in church. I knew how to play the church game real well. I have to admit though, my life never really reflected nothing of Jesus, I could get up and sing and smile and talk to everyone and act like I had it all together but my life at school and around my friends was something completely different. My parents went through a divorce when I was 9 and it hit me very hard and I just went a little crazy after that. I kept a lot of things to myself and didn't share a whole lot and by the time I hit high school, my actions were pretty wild. My way of dealing with things were to try and drown them, and I just wanted to feel numb. Needless to say, my answer to my problems was to drink them away or smoke them away. It came time for college and I couldn't wait to just get away and that about ruined me. Thankfully, I chose to come home after a semester away, things still weren't right, but I remember one morning I had woke up from a night of craziness and my boyfriend, fiance at the time, who is my husband now, had had it with me. I was just in this place of feeling at the lowest that I could possibly feel and I knew that God had been dealing with me. Something in me broke that morning, I'll never forget it! It was March 17, 1997, I called my mom crying my eyes out and she came to where I was with my sister and right there in my living room, I prayed and turned my life around!!
That was my moment of running to the Savior, I was dirty and filthy and a sinner and in a place just like this woman who was immoral, but I knew there was someone with His arms stretched out wide who paid a price for me. That's why I can't help but to give Him all of my worship and all of my praise. He saved me and cleaned me up and I just want to set at His feet and thank Him for His love and His mercy. This woman in the story of the gospels got it, and I got it that morning, on March 17, back 18 years ago. I don't ever want to forget what He did for me!! He is so worthy of all the honor! I wouldn't trade knowing Jesus for anything. He is my EVERYTHING!!
Going to church is not what saves you, having a family full of preachers is not what saves you! You must have a relationship with Jesus, believe on the name of Jesus, that He is the Son of God and He died for your sins and raised on the third day and now sits at the right hand of the Father and makes intercession for you and for me! Romans 10:9-10
Jesus is worth it all!!
