At the Feet of Jesus is a study that Nan Cunningham has written featuring Mary of Bethany.
Picture yourself at Jesus’ feet with the forgiveness of God making all things new in your life. Mary has much to teach us about adoration, devotion, and living our life at the feet of our Lord and Savior—Jesus Christ. She came to Jesus with a humble heart and made wise decisions that were based on her spiritual priorities. The result was praise from the Lord.
Of Mary, Jesus said, “And truly I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, that also which this woman has done shall be spoken of in memory of her” (Mar 14:9).
It is Nan’s desire and prayer that through this study, each of us would fall in love with Jesus all over again. Let your soul lavish in the freedom of forgiveness and be ready always to offer that forgiveness to others.

Nan - Choose Christ
After salvation, His plan for us is to grow to maturity as a believer. God wants us to be a disciple, to reflect the love and glory of Jesus to others.
Mary made the best choice, she chose the student-teacher relationship with Jesus. She chose a relationship with Him, it’s an on-going thing, a growing thing. Nothing, and nobody can keep you from a relationship with Jesus. We can lose many things in the world, things can be taken away. Nothing can wash away a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Heb 13:5 Rom 8:31-39 Nothing can separate you from the love of Christ. Nothing can take the Word out of your heart. 1PE 3:3-4 Inner beauty cannot be taken from us. Inner beauty is precious to Jesus, and it’s an imperishable beauty.
5 things to do every day to help us grow spiritually:
1. Wash: 1jo 1:9 Have your soul washed through confession.
2. Eat: Mat 4:4 We need to feed our souls with the Word.
3. Walk: close intimate friendship with Jesus. Listening and praying to Him.
4: Work: Eph 2:10 Working for Jesus is a joy, He gives you the opportunity and strength and rewards you for it.
5. Rest: We need rest for our souls. Jesus gives us rest when we come to Him.
