DEVO. 04.02.24

”And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.“ (Matthew‬ ‭28‬:‭9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

- Have you worshipped Jesus today?

- This scripture says, “They held him by the feet and worshiped Him”

- And isn’t that how it should be?

- They Beheld Him!

- I believe that when you have a true encounter with Jesus, the only reasonable response is to worship Him!

- I really think that we have gotten too used to this story and too used to going to church!

- We think that worship has to fit into a few songs and if we raise our hands, that is really good worship.

- Sometimes I think we get a little proud of ourselves if we raise our hands or express ourselves a certain way in worship.

- But, here, these women grabbed him by the feet.

- They were in awe and truly humbled themselves.

- These women had gone to the tomb where Jesus’ body was placed.

- They had prepared spices for his body.

- They were traumatized by what had occurred to their Messiah when he was crucified.

- Their whole life was turned upside down.

- And then on the way to the tomb, they encounter an earthquake and the Angel of the Lord.

- Consider all of the emotions involved.

- Think of the emotional roller coaster.

- They were expecting a wrapped up, dead body and instead encountered a living breathing Savior!

- They encountered Him.

- And whenever you encounter someone, you encounter their presence.

- And as they encountered His presence, they fell on their face and grabbed His feet and worshiped!

- They were in awe of Him!

- They didn’t have the words…they just fell down and grabbed His feet!

- This is the greatest picture of worship!

- So the next time you go “worship”, whether it is reading His Word, singing a song, writing in your journal or playing and instrument.

- Whatever way you choose to worship, don’t stop until you encounter His presence!

- And when you encounter His presence, let it change you!

- Let it humble you!

- Allow His presence to transform you!

- Go beyond the normal.

- Matthew 5:6 says, ”Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.“

- ‭‭Go for the filling, and don’t stop half way.

- Come to His presence for a full tank!

- Have a great Tuesday!
