At the Feet of Jesus!

Key Scripture:

John 12:3 (KJV)  Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment

SUMMARY

This sermon helps us understand that God has a plan for your life that you may not even be able to comprehend. We learn from the life of Martha, Mary and Lazarus, what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Through the three visits of Jesus to their hometown Bethany, we see that when we are at the feet of Jesus, we find His wonderful grace following us through the good and the bad times.

SERMON POINTS

Mary sat at the feet of Jesus.

Luke 10:39 (KJV) And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

 The first time Jesus went to Lazarus’ house. Martha was preparing a huge banquet for Jesus; however Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, listening to the wonderful things that Jesus was telling her. She chose the best place in the whole house.

Sitting there at the feet of Jesus, Mary built a relationship with the Lord, communicating and interacting with Him. This was the first experience Jesus had with this family.

 

Mary fell at the feet of Jesus.

 John 11:32 (KJV) Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

Jesus comes to Bethany a second time, 4 days after the death of Lazarus. The world thought that Jesus was late to help this beloved family. Martha couldn’t believe that Jesus could raise him up from the dead right then. But when Mary heard that Jesus was nearing their town she ran and fell at the feet of Jesus and wept. Her tears and weeping moved Jesus.

It was not that Jesus couldn’t raise Lazarus from the dead. He knew that Lazarus will come back from the dead. But this Mary who was at His feet when all was well, but when tragedy hit her, it bothered Jesus so much He groaned in His spirit and called out Lazarus back to life.

Today, all the answers to your life’s problems are at the feet of Jesus. Let’s make sure we go there at every season of life.

 

Mary anointed the feet of Jesus.

 John 12:3 (KJV) Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

 Jesus Christ was going to Bethany for the third time, six days before Passover. Now the once dead brother Lazarus is sitting hale and healthy with Jesus at the table. Martha was serving. People from all over came to see Jesus and Lazarus whom He raised from the dead. But Mary couldn’t keep herself from honoring Jesus. She broke the alabaster jar of costly perfume at anointed the feet of Jesus. She gave her all and the perfume filled the whole house. Many Jews believed in Jesus at that house.

When you give what is precious to you at the feet of Jesus in worship, we can shine as a light in this dark world for the glory of God.

 

CONCLUSION.

Mary was familiar with the feet of Jesus; it was her go to place when things were going well or when they were at their worst. For such a woman, who wouldn’t leave His feet alone, who was connected to Jesus, the Lord called out her miracle by name and delivered her from what broke her heart.  Today, the Lord will bring out alive everything that is dead in your life. Let’s hold on to the feet of Jesus because all you need is right there.
