    He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, 'Lord, do you wash my feet?' Jesus answered him, 'You don't kno...

Friends in Low Places

  • Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming close to him to hear him. The Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, 'This man welcomes sinners, and eats with them.' Luke 15:1 WEB

    Everyone knows that Jesus came to save the lost sinner, and they were all drawn to Him like a magnet, but the religious establishment of the time grumbled about this constantly. If they had their way, the religious leaders would have driven the sinners far, far away, but Jesus did not allow this to happen. He came to seek out and save the lost (Luke 19:10). In Luke 15:10, Jesus said that the angels rejoice over one sinner that repents.

    I was playing in a band at a party one night when He found me during the middle of a song. It is odd to explain, but I suddenly saw myself in third person view and He instantly gave me a new outlook on life. He refreshed my hope that there was something more. His loving presence came upon me in such a way that I put my bass guitar up, went home, laid on the floor and surrendered to His calling in tears. No one had to preach to me.

    The next morning, I went to church and was soon baptized. I prayed about quitting the band I was in, but He said no. So I had the pastor pray with me, and he said no. I needed the money anyway, so I continued playing in bands while wearing a Jesus t-shirt and a strap with a cross on it. Soon His presence began showing up in the bars and prophetic words would come to me for those in the room. I preached my first sermons in bar parking lots and they were powerful. People would begin trembling under His power, and I led some to the Lord.

    Jesus has friends in low places. They may put His statue in glorious sanctuaries, but you will still encounter His presence outside those walls in the dust and the dirt. He still wants to speak with you today, but some of the super religious will look down on you and try and drive you away from Him just as they did then. Don't give up, and know that it is not Jesus that is driving you away today. He will reach people right where they are, using your hands to touch them, and your voice to speak to them.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for leading by example. You are not a respecter of persons and in Your eyes, all of us are created equal. Let me see people as You see them, and fill me with Your discernment, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Sunday! Don't forget that our RHM Live weekend service is happening today at 10am EST! We will be continuing our online Bible Study with Luke, Chapter Eighteen. To find out more or join us this morning, go to this page: RHM Live
