True quotes from Godly Men #9
“Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.” (Luke 17:15-16)
The man fell down at Jesus’ feet; he did not feel perfectly in his place until he was lying there. “I am nobody, Lord,” he seemed to say, and therefore he fell on his face.
But the place for his prostration was “at Jesus’ feet.” I would rather be nobody at Christ’s feet than everybody anywhere else! There is no place so honorable as down at the feet of Jesus. Ah, to lie there always, and just love him wholly, and let self die out!
Oh, to have Christ standing over you as the one figure overshadowing your life henceforth and forever! True thankfulness lies low before the Lord. Added to this there was worship. He fell down at Jesus’ feet, glorifying God and giving thanks unto him.
Let us worship our Savior. Let others think as they like about Jesus, but we will put our finger into the print of the nails and say, “My Lord and my God!” If there be a God, he is God in Christ Jesus to us.
We shall never cease to adore him who has proved his Godhead by delivering us from leprosy of sin. All worship be to his supreme majesty!
