Sitting at the Feet of Jesus

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30

Those Who Suffer

Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus' feet, and He healed them. 31 So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

(Matthew 15:30-31)

  • These miracles showed the power of God, but also changed the lives of these people

  • James 1:12

James 1 12 l.jpg
James 1:12

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

  • We should not look upon our suffering as a heavy burden

  • If you suffer, sit at Jesus’ feet, and increaseyour faith!

Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea. 22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet 23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.”

(Mark 5:21-23)

  • Jesus is able to comfort those in sorrow

  • Psalm 1:1-2

Psalm 1 1 2 l.jpg
Psalm 1:1-2

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

  • When one learns to trust God in obedience, happiness follows. We can overcome sorrows through Christ

Those who sin l.jpg
Those Who Sin

And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.

(Luke 7:37-38)

  • Sit at Jesus feet, and ask for a release of sin

  • 2 Corinthians 7:9-11

2 corinthians 7 9 11 l.jpg
2 Corinthians 7:9-11

Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

Those who seek l.jpg

Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word.

(Luke 10:38-39)

  • Those who want to be right with God must seek after Jesus

  • Acts 17:11; Ephesians 3:18-19

Acts 17 11 l.jpg
Acts 17:11

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

  • It is noble to seek, and we are promised if we do, we “will find” (cf. Matthew 7:7)

Ephesians 3 18 19 l.jpg
Ephesians 3:18-19

May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-- 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

  • To find (to know, or comprehend), is to be filled with all the fullness of God.

The Common Bond:

All these groups had faith (trusting in Christ), and all got what they needed!

Hebrews 11:6

Hebrews 11 6 l.jpg
Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

  • Faith is an absolute MUST if we want to gain approval from God.

  • Trust in God, and sit at the Feet of Christ
