Lord, I Want You (1 of 3)
Series: At the Feet of Jesus
1. There are five occasions in the book of Luke that we find someone at the feet of Jesus. We see a woman weeping at His feet (7:38), a man sitting at His feet (8:35), a ruler falling at His feet (8:41), a leper praising at His feet (17:15-16), and Mary listening at His feet (10:39).
