Have You Wept at Jesus’ Feet?
Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon,
“Look at this woman kneeling here… from the time I first came in,
she has not stopped kissing my feet….
“I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven.”
From Luke 7:41-48
Many people I’ve met say they’re Christians, but few have been broken by the awareness of their own sins. They haven’t faced the damage they’ve done to others and themselves, whether intentional or unintentional.
When people truly face the damage they have done, they see themselves broken beyond repair. When they stop trying to repair themselves and turn to Jesus, he divinely touches them and assures them they’re not only forgivable and repairable, but will be forgiven and repaired.
That’s what a Savior does.
Have you knelt at Jesus’ feet, overwhelmed by your own brokenness? Don’t be afraid to face all of its ugliness, but don’t face it alone—bring it to Jesus.
God says in Psalm 51 that our broken self is an acceptable sacrifice. He will trade our brokenness for a fresh, new life of freedom, healing, and joy that we never could imagine.
