Three things struck me at yesterday’s service : 2

Jesus footwashing

I loved the opening hymn Great God your love has called us here

The two lines which were most special to me were:

We strain to glimpse your mercy seat

And find you kneeling at our feet

empahsising that God’s love and forgiveness is a free gift.  But you get the picture – here we are, screwing up our eyes, looking for the place of forgiveness, ‘the mercy seat?’  Where is it? Will we be welcome? Can we even approach it? Are we beyond God’s forgiveness?

And then we look down, and Jesus is there, washing our travellers feet, serving us!

Such is the love of God. Sometimes we struggle to find God, and then we hear the quiet voice – ‘I am with you, I love you, you are precious to me.’
