  • our faith and threats of a hostile culture
  • 00:00:16.280 --> 00:00:19.180

  • The Bible reveals that many have faced

  • as he faced the kinds of pressures
  • 00:00:34.260 --> 00:00:36.130

  • Born to a young mom,
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:32.130
  • God walking among us came into this world
  • 00:01:32.140 --> 00:01:36.040
  • with tiny little fragile feet
  • 00:01:36.050 --> 00:01:40.120
  • that could carry no weight.
  • 00:01:40.130 --> 00:01:42.180

  • You may be seated.
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:55.220
  • Would you turn with me to Matthew chapter 15.
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:59.060
  • I wanna read to you verses 29 through 31.
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:03.010
  • Matthew 15:29, "Jesus went on from there
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:07.060
  • "and walked beside the Sea of Galilee.
  • 00:02:07.070 --> 00:02:11.000
  • "And he went up on the mountain
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:12.120
  • "and sat down there.
  • 00:02:12.130 --> 00:02:14.230
  • "And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame,
  • 00:02:14.240 --> 00:02:20.080
  • "the blind, the crippled, the mute,
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:23.090
  • "and many others, and they put them at his feet,
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:28.110
  • "and he healed them, so that the crowd wondered,
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:32.140
  • "when they saw the mute speaking,
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:35.030
  • "the crippled healthy,
  • 00:02:35.040 --> 00:02:37.100
  • "the lame walking, and the blind seeing.
  • 00:02:37.110 --> 00:02:41.170
  • And they glorified the God of Israel."
  • 00:02:41.180 --> 00:02:44.180
  • I want you to imagine this scene
  • 00:02:44.190 --> 00:02:46.180
  • that we just read together,
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:48.060
  • cinematically.
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:49.280
  • I want you to take these words and take these moments
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:53.130
  • and every phrase
  • 00:02:53.140 --> 00:02:55.000
  • like it's a movie on a giant screen TV,
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:59.100
  • and you're holding the remote in your hand,
  • 00:02:59.110 --> 00:03:02.050
  • and I want you to just hold that remote up
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:05.090
  • and push "pause" on one particular moment
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:10.110
  • in this scene.
  • 00:03:10.120 --> 00:03:11.290
  • I want you to let that screen, the lens of the camera,
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:15.130
  • go all the way down,
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:17.080
  • and I want you to freeze the frame
  • 00:03:17.090 --> 00:03:19.240
  • right on the feet of Jesus.
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:23.090
  • What we're going to do together in this house
  • 00:03:23.100 --> 00:03:25.190
  • is that we're gonna take a really, really close look
  • 00:03:25.200 --> 00:03:29.260
  • at Jesus,
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.140
  • but from a different perspective
  • 00:03:31.150 --> 00:03:33.000
  • than perhaps we've done before
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:34.260
  • because we're gonna peer into him,
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:36.210
  • we're gonna stare into the Scriptures
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:39.010
  • is at Jesus--anybody with me?--from the ankles, down.
  • 00:03:39.020 --> 00:03:45.250
  • We are going to look at the feet of Jesus over
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:50.230
  • and over and over again
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:53.230
  • because what I had the privilege to do
  • 00:03:53.240 --> 00:03:56.150
  • in my preparation
  • 00:03:56.160 --> 00:03:57.280
  • was look up every single time in the Scriptures
  • 00:03:57.290 --> 00:04:02.130
  • that the lens takes us to the feet of Jesus
  • 00:04:02.140 --> 00:04:07.180
  • and all the variance
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:11.100
  • that happens there at that one pair of feet.
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:17.240
  • Before we go there, I wanna explain to you
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:20.020
  • why this has so much prominence to us
  • 00:04:20.030 --> 00:04:23.170
  • and why this ought to strike up some awe in us
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:26.210
  • as we see this thing unfold and we take a look at the feet
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:30.030
  • of Jesus because,
  • 00:04:30.040 --> 00:04:31.280
  • what had been spiritual imagery--and that
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:34.240
  • was their reality, but they could not see it
  • 00:04:34.250 --> 00:04:36.050
  • with their eyes--in the Old Testament,
  • 00:04:36.060 --> 00:04:38.130
  • I'm thinking in terms of Leviticus 26:11 and 12,
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:42.260
  • where God had said this, "I will make my dwelling
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:45.130
  • among you, and I will walk among you."
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:49.110
  • What had been this unseen reality to them,
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:54.120
  • he'd made his presence known
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:55.280
  • in lots of other ways by the cloudy pillar,
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:58.290
  • by a fire by night.
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.220
  • He had shown his provision through the manna,
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:03.110
  • through the quail,
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:04.250
  • so many things,
  • 00:05:04.260 --> 00:05:06.160
  • dividing the waters in the sea
  • 00:05:06.170 --> 00:05:08.170
  • that they could pass to the land
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:11.180
  • that God had called them,
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:13.000
  • all of these things,
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:14.100
  • but what had been an unseen reality in the Old Testament
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:19.150
  • becomes a vivid,
  • 00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:23.000
  • visible reality in the New Testament,
  • 00:05:23.010 --> 00:05:27.210
  • and maybe some of you are like me,
  • 00:05:27.220 --> 00:05:30.110
  • and you had been raised up
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:31.210
  • in the things of the Scripture,
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.090
  • and that does not hit you with any kind of profoundness
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:36.060
  • or power right now,
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:37.170
  • but we're gonna cling on it until it does
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:40.040
  • because something about this ought to move us
  • 00:05:40.050 --> 00:05:43.200
  • because this is God we're talking about, who said,
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:46.020
  • "I will make my dwelling among you,
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:48.090
  • and I will walk among you," and then, suddenly,
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:53.100
  • he does it with real feet,
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:06:00.100
  • feet of human clay.
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:03.290
  • We're gonna see what difference it makes for our feet,
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:08.250
  • that God came with feet,
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:11.250
  • and how it is that you and I walk in the prints
  • 00:06:11.260 --> 00:06:16.030
  • that those feet left behind.
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:20.160
  • Now, here's what I want you to do.
  • 00:06:20.170 --> 00:06:22.000
  • If you'll leave something there in Matthew,
  • 00:06:22.010 --> 00:06:23.100
  • if you're new to it and you just wanna listen
  • 00:06:23.110 --> 00:06:25.290
  • and you don't know where all this turning
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.140
  • is coming from,
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:28.240
  • I'm gonna read it to you anyway,
  • 00:06:28.250 --> 00:06:30.070
  • but if you love to flip around in your Bible
  • 00:06:30.080 --> 00:06:33.090
  • and you would take the time to look,
  • 00:06:33.100 --> 00:06:34.190
  • go with me, first of all, to Exodus.
  • 00:06:34.200 --> 00:06:36.070
  • Now, get ready because we're gonna do this
  • 00:06:36.080 --> 00:06:37.180
  • at lightning speed.
  • 00:06:37.190 --> 00:06:39.000
  • Go with me, first of all, to Exodus 24.
  • 00:06:39.010 --> 00:06:43.090
  • Now, what is our objective over the next couple of minutes?
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:46.170
  • Well, to allow the Holy Spirit to stir up some awe in us
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:51.130
  • that it is a very, very big deal
  • 00:06:51.140 --> 00:06:53.280
  • that God put on human feet,
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:56.020
  • a very big deal,
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:57.180
  • and I wanna show you in the Scriptures
  • 00:06:57.190 --> 00:07:00.030
  • why it ought to strike up a profound sense of humility
  • 00:07:00.040 --> 00:07:07.030
  • that here we are on earth
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:09.000
  • and God would make his dwelling place
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:11.070
  • and walk among us with human skin on.
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:14.100
  • Exodus 24, I wanna read to you verses 9 through 11.
  • 00:07:14.110 --> 00:07:18.220
  • This is when God has called the people
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:22.030
  • out of Egypt into the wilderness.
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:25.030
  • He is now calling Moses and the elders up the mountain
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:30.040
  • where he is dwelling on top of that mountain
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.270
  • in this dark, thick cloud,
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:35.190
  • and all this lightning and all this thunder
  • 00:07:35.200 --> 00:07:38.100
  • coming out of this dark cloud.
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:40.290
  • And so he calls Moses up with Aaron and his sons,
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:45.200
  • and some of the elders.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:47.200
  • They get to go partially up that mountain,
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:50.140
  • and then Moses is called the rest of the way,
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:53.080
  • but we're gonna lock in on it as the elders
  • 00:07:53.090 --> 00:07:56.190
  • and Moses, and Aaron and his sons head up.
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:08:00.170
  • It says in verse 9 through 11, Exodus 24, verse 9,
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:04.150
  • "Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu,
  • 00:08:04.160 --> 00:08:07.280
  • "and 70 of the elders of Israel went up,
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:10.250
  • and they saw the God of Israel."
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:13.250
  • Now, we know they could not have seen his face
  • 00:08:13.260 --> 00:08:16.220
  • because Exodus 33 tells us
  • 00:08:16.230 --> 00:08:18.210
  • that no man could see his face and live.
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:22.050
  • So what did they--they saw some kind of manifestation
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:27.010
  • of his glory in a form they would describe as
  • 00:08:27.020 --> 00:08:32.080
  • "We saw the God of Israel,"
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:35.110
  • and that says, "There was under his feet
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:38.060
  • "as it were a pavement of sapphire stone,
  • 00:08:38.070 --> 00:08:42.130
  • like the very heaven for clearness."
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:45.170
  • Verse 11, "And he did not lay his hand on the chief men
  • 00:08:45.180 --> 00:08:48.120
  • "of the people of Israel.
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:49.290
  • They beheld God, and ate and drank."
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:54.120
  • So please hear with me that they see the feet of God,
  • 00:08:54.130 --> 00:09:00.110
  • something that we would just call a manifestation
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:03.220
  • that there is this wall, this floor,
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:07.250
  • this pavement of sapphire stone,
  • 00:09:07.260 --> 00:09:11.030
  • and it says
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:12.130
  • "like the very heaven for clearness."
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:14.110
  • Now, I'm just gonna pitch out to you, this is not anything
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:16.290
  • that you would ever wanna write down.
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.200
  • This is just something that I'm wondering
  • 00:09:18.210 --> 00:09:21.070
  • if is in play here in this scene.
  • 00:09:21.080 --> 00:09:24.220
  • See, God never, ever is pictured,
  • 00:09:24.230 --> 00:09:27.150
  • in any kind of revelation in Scripture,
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:31.050
  • ever away from his throne.
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:33.020
  • Every single time you see a glimpse of his throne,
  • 00:09:33.030 --> 00:09:35.120
  • he's always on it.
  • 00:09:35.130 --> 00:09:37.000
  • There's Isaiah chapter 6.
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:38.250
  • There's Ezekiel chapter 1.
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.200
  • There is Revelation chapter 4.
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:42.270
  • Never is the throne of God depicted in the Scriptures
  • 00:09:42.280 --> 00:09:47.050
  • that he is not seated upon it,
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:50.010
  • and we're even told in Ezekiel 1,
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:52.190
  • in this fascinating vision that Ezekiel gets,
  • 00:09:52.200 --> 00:09:55.260
  • that there were wheels that were turning on that throne,
  • 00:09:55.270 --> 00:09:59.010
  • so you have to wonder,
  • 00:09:59.020 --> 00:10:00.110
  • if God's gonna go anywhere--see, he never leaves his throne,
  • 00:10:00.120 --> 00:10:02.270
  • so I just have to wonder,
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:04.070
  • does he just take it up with him,
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:05.180
  • and that's why all the wheels are on,
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.000
  • and that's why all the angels just go with him?
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:08.180
  • 'Cause they gotta keep flyin' around and goin',
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:10.180
  • "Holy, holy, holy,"
  • 00:10:10.190 --> 00:10:11.280
  • 'cause they never do stop, night or day.
  • 00:10:11.290 --> 00:10:13.250
  • So he just takes the whole entourage with him
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:16.180
  • wherever he goes.
  • 00:10:16.190 --> 00:10:18.140
  • So, you know, I have to wonder, is this little glimpse
  • 00:10:18.150 --> 00:10:21.190
  • 'cause he's bringin' the floor of heaven with him.
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:23.280
  • I said, "Don't write that down in pen."
  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:26.220
  • I'm just asking you, sapphire stone right there.
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:29.230
  • I mean, they're seein'--well, I mean, they saw God,
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:32.040
  • and they're seein' underneath his feet
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.260
  • there's this pavement, this pavement.
  • 00:10:33.270 --> 00:10:36.230
  • What in the world?
  • 00:10:36.240 --> 00:10:38.160
  • Be somethin' right about that-- just startles me.
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:43.140
  • It causes that kind of holy fear
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:47.080
  • to stir around in my heart.
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:49.060
  • Now go with me to Isaiah 66, and we're getting really,
  • 00:10:49.070 --> 00:10:52.070
  • really close to where we're heading.
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:53.280
  • I wanna read verses 1 and 2: "Thus says the Lord,
  • 00:10:53.290 --> 00:10:58.010
  • 'Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:11:03.030
  • What is the house that you would build for me,
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:04.260
  • and what is the place of my rest?
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:06.290
  • All these things my hand has made,
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:09.040
  • and so all these things came to be,
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:11.070
  • declares the Lord.'"
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:12.250
  • But this is what he says in the second part of verse 2:
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:15.110
  • "But this is the one to whom I will look:
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:17.160
  • "He who is humble and contrite in spirit
  • 00:11:17.170 --> 00:11:21.020
  • and trembles at my word."
  • 00:11:21.030 --> 00:11:22.250
  • This is not really where our lesson is headed,
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:25.140
  • but I have to take this moment and say it:
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:27.270
  • Listen, it is a beautiful thing for us to tremble
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.140
  • at the Word of the Lord.
  • 00:11:30.150 --> 00:11:32.200
  • We lose the power of the cross
  • 00:11:32.210 --> 00:11:35.180
  • when we take the razor-sharp edge
  • 00:11:35.190 --> 00:11:38.130
  • off the sword of the Spirit,
  • 00:11:38.140 --> 00:11:40.270
  • when it no longer can divide
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:42.180
  • between soul and spirit and marrow,
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:45.140
  • when we've now made it so dull
  • 00:11:45.150 --> 00:11:48.010
  • that it no longer causes us to look at some passage and go,
  • 00:11:48.020 --> 00:11:51.190
  • "I have no idea what that means,
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.060
  • but that nearly scares the life out of me."
  • 00:11:53.070 --> 00:11:56.280
  • Then what we've done is that we have cheapened
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:59.210
  • the grace of the cross that said,
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:02.200
  • "Even so, I have loved you,
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:06.240
  • "and I have received you,
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:09.240
  • "and I have made you clean,
  • 00:12:09.250 --> 00:12:12.060
  • "and I have made you holy
  • 00:12:12.070 --> 00:12:13.210
  • "and set you apart.
  • 00:12:13.220 --> 00:12:15.130
  • "This is the one to whom I will look,
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:17.120
  • "who is humble and contrite in spirit
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:19.070
  • and trembles at my word."
  • 00:12:19.080 --> 00:12:20.180
  • Go back to the part that says, in verse 1,
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:22.060
  • "Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool."
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:24.260
  • I love it when you see certain passages that are repeated
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:28.050
  • a number of times in other places in Scripture.
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:30.070
  • You would see this one.
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:31.170
  • This one was a big deal.
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:32.270
  • We see things like this in the Psalms.
  • 00:12:32.280 --> 00:12:35.010
  • We see it in the New Testament.
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:36.240
  • This is a big one to us, a big one to us,
  • 00:12:36.250 --> 00:12:38.190
  • so we picture this kind of imagery here
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:40.220
  • that he is saying, "Heaven is my throne,
  • 00:12:40.230 --> 00:12:44.020
  • and earth is my footstool."
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:45.170
  • In Psalm 110, verse 1, this is David being placed
  • 00:12:45.180 --> 00:12:50.120
  • under the unction of the inspiration
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:52.240
  • of the Spirit, and he says these words:
  • 00:12:52.250 --> 00:12:55.130
  • "The Lord says to my Lord--" and now he's talking about Christ--
  • 00:12:55.140 --> 00:12:59.080
  • "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:03.030
  • your footstool."
  • 00:13:03.040 --> 00:13:04.240
  • And you find that in several places
  • 00:13:04.250 --> 00:13:06.260
  • in the New Testament that,
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:08.090
  • when Christ ascended to the right hand of God,
  • 00:13:08.100 --> 00:13:11.110
  • he sat down beside him,
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:13.020
  • and there is this picture in this prophecy of God goin',
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:16.290
  • "Son, you know what?
  • 00:13:17.000 --> 00:13:18.090
  • "You just sit right here until I make
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:22.030
  • every demonic enemy your footstool."
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:28.050
  • It's a powerful, powerful picture.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:33.000
  • These are depictions of the feet of God.
  • 00:13:33.010 --> 00:13:37.140

  • (Beth Moore) I am so full of joy this morning.
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:42.080
  • Anybody else got a little bit of joy on them today?
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:47.060
  • We're gonna lift it up and let the name of Jesus
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:50.270
  • go forth in this place in such power
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:54.110
  • and in such presence.

  • We are so, so thrilled to be with you.
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:15:00.170
  • And I think what God's gonna remind us of today
  • 00:15:00.180 --> 00:15:03.140
  • is it we're in the middle of the story.
  • 00:15:03.150 --> 00:15:07.040
  • Do you not think that he's gonna tie up
  • 00:15:07.050 --> 00:15:08.230
  • every thread where you are concerned,
  • 00:15:08.240 --> 00:15:11.280
  • that he who started the plan knows how to end it?
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:16.190
  • We're gonna get some confidence in him today in his ability
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:21.170
  • to always bring something to a good finish.
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:25.230
  • Can somebody say, "hallelujah"?
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:28.100
  • There's nothing, no sin, no transgression
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:32.230
  • that exceeds the power of the cross.
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:35.020
  • Thank you, God.
  • 00:15:35.030 --> 00:15:36.130
  • The Scriptures tell us in several different places
  • 00:15:38.260 --> 00:15:41.070
  • that under his feet were dark clouds.
  • 00:15:41.080 --> 00:15:45.130
  • They would come in the whirlwind and in the storm,
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:50.200
  • and so that gives us a little background
  • 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:54.020
  • for what becomes then, point number one,
  • 00:15:54.030 --> 00:15:57.220
  • "Christ came to earth
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:16:00.130
  • "as God walking among us,
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:03.230
  • wearing feet."
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.280
  • And suddenly, here they are in view.
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:09.100
  • It is God wearing human skin,
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:13.210
  • flesh and blood,
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:15.010
  • completely God, wrapped in man,
  • 00:16:15.020 --> 00:16:20.120
  • and here he is, doing exactly what he said,
  • 00:16:20.130 --> 00:16:24.130
  • all the way back in Leviticus,
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:26.050
  • "And I will make my dwelling among them,
  • 00:16:26.060 --> 00:16:28.160
  • "and I will walk among them, and I will be their God,
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:16:32.100
  • and they shall be my people."
  • 00:16:32.110 --> 00:16:36.010
  • Born to a young mom, God walking among us
  • 00:16:36.020 --> 00:16:39.280
  • came into this world with tiny little fragile feet
  • 00:16:39.290 --> 00:16:45.240
  • that could carry no weight.
  • 00:16:45.250 --> 00:16:48.110
  • What I need is a volunteer for a minute.
  • 00:16:48.120 --> 00:16:52.130
  • Tell me your name.
  • 00:16:52.140 --> 00:16:54.290
  • You have what?
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.160
  • She just told me that she has wide feet,
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:16:59.180
  • and she hopes that's okay.
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:02.290
  • Is it okay with y'all if our sister has wide feet?
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:08.290
  • Yes.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:10.090
  • Now, I needed to know your name.
  • 00:17:10.100 --> 00:17:11.190
  • My name is Kimber.
  • 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:12.290
  • Kimber, because, Kimber, before we knew your name,
  • 00:17:13.000 --> 00:17:14.210
  • we knew you had wide feet.
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:16.110
  • I'm humble.
  • 00:17:16.120 --> 00:17:17.210
  • Yes, you are. I am too, I am too.
  • 00:17:17.220 --> 00:17:19.270
  • Now, I want you to sit down right here.
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:21.090
  • Kimber, I love that name.
  • 00:17:21.100 --> 00:17:22.210
  • Now, Kimber, I want to use you, if I could.
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:25.200
  • If you don't mind, let me slip your sandals off of you.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:29.050
  • Are they pretty easy?
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:33.180
  • Thank you.
  • 00:17:33.190 --> 00:17:35.020
  • You can take off the other one so that I can just get you
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:39.140
  • to demonstrate with me
  • 00:17:39.150 --> 00:17:43.130
  • what it is to have human feet.
  • 00:17:43.140 --> 00:17:47.240
  • Now, let me tell you something, Kimber--and
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:49.260
  • I'mma tell the rest of the group this
  • 00:17:49.270 --> 00:17:51.160
  • while we're doing this--that what you may not know--I
  • 00:17:51.170 --> 00:17:54.030
  • just want you to just--this precious little foot right here,
  • 00:17:54.040 --> 00:17:57.100
  • what you may not know
  • 00:17:57.110 --> 00:17:58.230
  • is that this is a wonder right here,
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:02.070
  • an absolute wonder.
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:04.060
  • Do you know that Leonardo da Vinci
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:06.260
  • called the human foot "a masterpiece of engineering"
  • 00:18:06.270 --> 00:18:12.110
  • and "a work of art," that this foot right here,
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:16.020
  • "a masterpiece of engineering"
  • 00:18:16.030 --> 00:18:19.080
  • and "a work of art"?
  • 00:18:19.090 --> 00:18:23.020
  • So many marvels about it because this foot right here
  • 00:18:23.030 --> 00:18:28.040
  • was created specifically for man,
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:31.270
  • that one of our defining characteristics
  • 00:18:31.280 --> 00:18:36.000
  • when God created Adam and he--I almost wonder
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:41.070
  • if God looked at his Son and said,
  • 00:18:41.080 --> 00:18:44.260
  • "Listen, you get a lot of say in this
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:46.100
  • 'cause you're gonna be the one puttin' all this on.
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:49.030
  • So how do you want this thing to go?"
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:50.260
  • Now, I'm makin' that up,
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.090
  • but it does stand to reason, doesn't it?
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:55.110
  • That he might go, "Listen, you're gonna be the one
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:58.050
  • that's gonna be havin' to walk around in this.
  • 00:18:58.060 --> 00:18:59.250
  • How should this ought to--how ought this to go down?"
  • 00:18:59.260 --> 00:19:03.090
  • And so he gave man feet, and so, when he created him,
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:09.020
  • this is one of our defining features,
  • 00:19:09.030 --> 00:19:12.150
  • Kimber, and ladies, because in these feet
  • 00:19:12.160 --> 00:19:18.180
  • you have the ability
  • 00:19:18.190 --> 00:19:22.030
  • to carry everything upright.
  • 00:19:22.040 --> 00:19:25.060
  • We are the vertebrates.
  • 00:19:25.070 --> 00:19:26.260
  • We are upright creatures that God made to be able
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:30.180
  • to come into relationship with him.
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:32.290
  • We are not down on all fours.
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:35.030
  • We are up on our two feet, and they're made marvelously
  • 00:19:35.040 --> 00:19:41.010
  • so that they can stand that kind of pressure
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:44.190
  • and that kind of weight.
  • 00:19:44.200 --> 00:19:47.150
  • Feet are a marvelous masterpiece of God.
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:51.280
  • Like ours, Christ's feet would have been mostly cartilage
  • 00:19:51.290 --> 00:19:57.190
  • when he was first born and that, through time,
  • 00:19:57.200 --> 00:20:01.170
  • taking all the way to about the year 21,
  • 00:20:01.180 --> 00:20:05.160
  • until our feet completely become hardened,
  • 00:20:05.170 --> 00:20:08.150
  • did you know that there are about 5.000 nerves in your feet,
  • 00:20:08.160 --> 00:20:14.110
  • and many of those nerve endings are very close to the skin,
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:18.020
  • which is why, if I do this to you right here,
  • 00:20:18.030 --> 00:20:20.100
  • Kimber, that it--
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:22.010
  • Very, very ticklish.
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:23.180
  • Why?
  • 00:20:23.190 --> 00:20:24.280
  • Because there are all these nerve endings
  • 00:20:24.290 --> 00:20:26.180
  • that are right here on the bottom of the feet.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:30.090
  • And, see, you gave me such room.
  • 00:20:30.100 --> 00:20:32.070
  • When you said that you had wide feet, I thought,
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:33.240
  • "That's all the more, Lord."
  • 00:20:33.250 --> 00:20:35.160
  • He's given us the double portion right here.
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:39.030
  • Did you know that there are 26 bones
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:43.190
  • in this one foot,
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.270
  • 33 joints, over 100 tendons
  • 00:20:45.280 --> 00:20:49.290
  • and muscles and ligaments?
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:52.010
  • And here's the part all of you came to hear:
  • 00:20:52.020 --> 00:20:56.220
  • You have 250.000 sweat glands
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:21:03.210
  • in your feet.
  • 00:21:04.020 --> 00:21:07.260
  • You are not making up the smell that comes
  • 00:21:07.270 --> 00:21:12.010
  • from your feet.
  • 00:21:12.020 --> 00:21:14.130
  • There's nothing about it that is your imagination.
  • 00:21:14.140 --> 00:21:20.040
  • I saw one--I don't have any idea if this is true.
  • 00:21:20.050 --> 00:21:24.140
  • They reported that some pint of sweat
  • 00:21:24.150 --> 00:21:26.260
  • comes from our feet every day.
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:28.290
  • I don't know.
  • 00:21:29.000 --> 00:21:30.090
  • I can't handle the truth. Can you?
  • 00:21:30.100 --> 00:21:32.060
  • I really--I can't handle the truth.
  • 00:21:32.070 --> 00:21:34.120
  • I can't handle it.
  • 00:21:34.130 --> 00:21:35.250
  • In 2 Samuel 21, verse 20, there's this giant,
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:41.060
  • and, at first, you might think, I mean, "Was it Goliath?"
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:44.130
  • No, no, no, but it's in the same general part of the world,
  • 00:21:44.140 --> 00:21:48.150
  • same town that Goliath would've come from,
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:50.250
  • and he's in the heritage,
  • 00:21:50.260 --> 00:21:53.000
  • he's a descendant of these giants,
  • 00:21:53.010 --> 00:21:55.100
  • and he's got six toes on each foot
  • 00:21:55.110 --> 00:21:58.250
  • and six fingers on each hand.
  • 00:21:58.260 --> 00:22:03.120
  • Foot.
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:06.030
  • Foot.
  • 00:22:06.040 --> 00:22:07.140
  • I love how the verse says, "Twenty-four in all,"
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:11.210
  • like that ought to be some big shock to us
  • 00:22:11.220 --> 00:22:14.130
  • that every single one of those digits were counted,
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:17.130
  • and that's how many he had.
  • 00:22:17.140 --> 00:22:20.210
  • The marvels of the feet.
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:25.170
  • I want you to think through this with me
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:27.280
  • because God designed these very feet,
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:32.170
  • knowing good and well
  • 00:22:32.180 --> 00:22:34.030
  • he himself would be wearing them one day,
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:38.230
  • that he would be walking among us,
  • 00:22:38.240 --> 00:22:41.100
  • making his dwelling place, walking among us,
  • 00:22:41.110 --> 00:22:46.100
  • God taking on the feet of man.
  • 00:22:46.110 --> 00:22:52.050
  • I'mma let you go, Kimber, and I thank you so much
  • 00:22:52.060 --> 00:22:54.110
  • for lettin' me pick on you.
  • 00:22:54.120 --> 00:22:56.040
  • Would you thank her for her feet?
  • 00:22:56.050 --> 00:22:59.050
  • Thank her for her feet.
  • 00:22:59.060 --> 00:23:03.110
  • Did you know that the very first time the word "feet"
  • 00:23:03.120 --> 00:23:08.080
  • is used in the entire Word of God,
  • 00:23:08.090 --> 00:23:11.240
  • it just happens to be in context of a theophany?
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:15.170
  • Now, "theophany," if you're new, say,
  • 00:23:15.180 --> 00:23:17.180
  • you're 17 years old and you've never been part
  • 00:23:17.190 --> 00:23:19.130
  • of a Bible study like this, you wanna know
  • 00:23:19.140 --> 00:23:21.190
  • what this word means
  • 00:23:21.200 --> 00:23:23.100
  • because it's a very, very cool word.
  • 00:23:23.110 --> 00:23:25.160
  • It means some kind of manifestation of God
  • 00:23:25.170 --> 00:23:29.180
  • that was--somehow was discernible by the senses,
  • 00:23:29.190 --> 00:23:36.030
  • something they could see
  • 00:23:36.040 --> 00:23:37.150
  • or they could feel or they could experience,
  • 00:23:37.160 --> 00:23:39.270
  • and it's in the context of three visitors
  • 00:23:39.280 --> 00:23:43.010
  • that came to Abraham.
  • 00:23:43.020 --> 00:23:44.250
  • They were coming with the news that, in a year,
  • 00:23:44.260 --> 00:23:47.040
  • they would have a son,
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:49.040
  • just as God promised, only we find out,
  • 00:23:49.050 --> 00:23:51.060
  • among those three visitors,
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:52.230
  • that who it happens to be is the Lord himself
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:56.000
  • and two of his angels, and in that very context,
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:24:00.020
  • the first time the word is used in the ESV,
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:02.100
  • we learn that Abraham says to him,
  • 00:24:02.110 --> 00:24:05.010
  • "I will give you some water to wash your feet."
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:09.220
  • By the way, did you know that, according to one publication,
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:13.140
  • women have four times as many foot problems as men?
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:17.210
  • Four times.
  • 00:24:17.220 --> 00:24:19.010
  • You wanted to know this. You wanted to know this.
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:21.070
  • And why in the world would we have four times
  • 00:24:21.080 --> 00:24:24.140
  • the foot problems that men have?
  • 00:24:24.150 --> 00:24:26.090
  • Can somebody tell me, please?
  • 00:24:26.100 --> 00:24:28.220
  • Heels. Heels.
  • 00:24:28.230 --> 00:24:30.020
  • But would you also like to know that it was men
  • 00:24:30.030 --> 00:24:33.020
  • that first started with the heels?
  • 00:24:33.030 --> 00:24:36.010
  • Women picked it up from the men.
  • 00:24:36.020 --> 00:24:38.280
  • It was men originally.
  • 00:24:38.290 --> 00:24:40.260
  • It goes all the way back to--I've got it written
  • 00:24:40.270 --> 00:24:43.260
  • down--the Persian warriors in the 17th century.
  • 00:24:43.270 --> 00:24:47.150
  • They wore heels, and the reason they did was because the riders,
  • 00:24:47.160 --> 00:24:51.210
  • the ones that rode the horses, the heels would help their feet,
  • 00:24:51.220 --> 00:24:56.070
  • their shoes,
  • 00:24:56.080 --> 00:24:57.170
  • stay in the stirrups of the horses.
  • 00:24:57.180 --> 00:24:59.180
  • So it became a status symbol because they were warriors.
  • 00:24:59.190 --> 00:25:03.190
  • It became a European status symbol among the men
  • 00:25:03.200 --> 00:25:07.220
  • that it's what made you look like a warrior,
  • 00:25:07.230 --> 00:25:10.180
  • so men began wearing heels.
  • 00:25:10.190 --> 00:25:12.260
  • Well, then, the women wanted to wear heels,
  • 00:25:12.270 --> 00:25:15.070
  • so the women took it up.
  • 00:25:15.080 --> 00:25:16.210
  • Once the women started doing it, 'cause the men were, like,
  • 00:25:16.220 --> 00:25:18.180
  • over it--wasn't near as cool to them anymore--and
  • 00:25:18.190 --> 00:25:21.110
  • so there we've got four times the feet problems.
  • 00:25:21.120 --> 00:25:26.190
  • The disciples all knew exactly what Jesus's feet looked like.
  • 00:25:26.200 --> 00:25:32.060
  • Now, we know for a fact because we know that John the Baptizer
  • 00:25:32.070 --> 00:25:35.240
  • said of him, "I'm not worthy to untie his sandals,"
  • 00:25:35.250 --> 00:25:39.010
  • so we know for a fact that Jesus wore sandals.
  • 00:25:39.020 --> 00:25:43.270
  • I don't know how that hits you, but he did.
  • 00:25:43.280 --> 00:25:48.130
  • And so they would've seen his feet over and over again.
  • 00:25:48.140 --> 00:25:53.180
  • They would've known, was his second toe
  • 00:25:53.190 --> 00:25:55.170
  • a little longer than his big toe?
  • 00:25:55.180 --> 00:25:59.170
  • Did some of 'em turn in a little bit strange?
  • 00:25:59.180 --> 00:26:02.240
  • And if you're thinkin', "No, he would've had these,
  • 00:26:02.250 --> 00:26:04.130
  • just, like, very gentle, uncalloused feet,"
  • 00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:07.000
  • I don't think that's true.
  • 00:26:07.010 --> 00:26:09.050
  • They walked all over the place.
  • 00:26:09.060 --> 00:26:11.210
  • They weren't on wheels.
  • 00:26:11.220 --> 00:26:15.080
  • They knew exactly how his feet laid out
  • 00:26:15.090 --> 00:26:19.050
  • in those sandals,
  • 00:26:19.060 --> 00:26:22.020
  • exactly what color they were,
  • 00:26:22.030 --> 00:26:26.160
  • how he seemed to walk,
  • 00:26:29.060 --> 00:26:31.020
  • what his gait was like when he did so,
  • 00:26:31.030 --> 00:26:34.000
  • when he was God,
  • 00:26:34.010 --> 00:26:37.220
  • who'd made his dwelling place among man,
  • 00:26:37.230 --> 00:26:41.170
  • walking among us.
  • 00:26:41.180 --> 00:26:44.140
  • 00:26:44.150 --> 00:26:51.150
  • We have the joyful privilege by the power of the cross
  • 00:26:53.110 --> 00:26:57.180
  • to surrender to Jesus what is under his feet.
  • 00:26:57.190 --> 00:27:02.110
  • What is too much for you is under his feet,
  • 00:27:02.120 --> 00:27:06.050
  • and here's the beautiful thing.
  • 00:27:06.060 --> 00:27:07.230
  • When we surrender at his feet, when you and I learn
  • 00:27:07.240 --> 00:27:10.170
  • how to live life at his feet,
  • 00:27:10.180 --> 00:27:14.000
  • he makes that place glorious.
  • 00:27:14.010 --> 00:27:17.250
