|Whom shall I send? Send me Lord 'Blogger|
Jesus, the possessor of all authority of God, washed the disciples’ feet. We wonder why He would do something that servants were expected to do.
Our Lord knows of the upcoming betrayal and who would do it. He knew the hearts of the eleven others. Jesus modeled love to them. I am sure they were humbled by the Master’s deed. It must have been very personal to all of them.
What was Jesus doing when He did this?
William Barclay indicates out that the Teacher makes an underlying point beside the visual image of foot washing.
Our Lord showed them there is greatness by service, the only kind of greatness.He chose the most menial task to illustrate the point. Anything else is selfishness. What are examples of service?
Volunteering for a task,
Visiting those who are ill,
Praying for others consistently.
Donating to ministries,
Working in ministries.
I look at this list and realize I have times when I come up short in these areas. I want to do better but I also want to do as God wants me to do.
