"And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. ... And he said to the woman, 'Your faith has saved you; go in peace.'" - Luke 7:37-38, 50
Who are you? You are a man or woman of your community. Your name is known by some, but unknown by far more. You may be just a number to the IRS, your bank and creditors and at the end of the journey your name will be listed with a long list of others that slipped away that day. As the dew of the morning you will be here today and gone tomorrow. Who are you?
Yet, there is Someone to who cares very much for you. He has heard your every prayer and He has touched your life with grace and forgiveness in response to your faith. He receives your gratitude and worship with open arms of love. While the world moves along, caught in it's own sense of importance, He is moved by your every tear and heartache. The answer to the question "Who are you?" is simple... you are His.
Love Him with all your heart my friend. Take time today at the feet of your Savior and kiss His feet with prayers of gratitude and praise. Be encouraged by the fact that you are cared for by the most important person in all of time and space. Who are you? You are the one that Jesus has forgiven and you are His forever.
