Luke 8:35 Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from who the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid.
When I finally found myself figuratively naked and afraid—with nowhere to look but to the One who was reaching out toward me—things changed. The grace I experienced shook me to my core, igniting a transformative process of sanctification in my life. I am far from perfect, but like that man Jesus heals among the tombs, I am—thanks be to God—clothed, in my right mind, and sitting at the feet of Jesus.
MOVING FORWARD: Spend an extra five minutes at Jesus’ feet today.
