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.
Luk 7:36-50 Mary is at the feet of Jesus, and it’s the best place to live your life. Mary wiped Jesus’ feet with her hair, her glory. Mary was a prisoner of her own sin, and Jesus set her free. Rom 3:23 Rom 6:23 Rom 5:8 Our greatest decision: to believe in who He is. Joh 3:16
Forgiveness of Jesus Christ: Mary had a broken heart, and needed it healed. Healing only starts with receiving forgiveness and giving forgiveness. Eph 4:31-32 Eph 1:8-9 We don’t deserve forgiveness, but He give it because of who He is. Forgiving is not saying what was done was right. Forgiveness is remembering what Jesus has done with our sin, and being willing to extend that to someone else. Col 2:13-14 Mat 18:21 There is no limit to the amount of times we should forgive someone. If we have a bitter heart against someone it becomes deeply rooted within us. When we forgive, it takes down that bitterness. Heb 5:12 Psa 103:12 We don’t have to keep bringing up an issue if we’ve forgiven that person. Isa 61:1-11 Jesus came to bind up the brokenhearted and set the captives free.
