See Peter’s reaction to Jesus’ washing their feet and to Jesus’ words in verse 7! Judas calmly lets Jesus wash his feet – without a murmur or a protest! Judas was ‘not clean’, but obviously this did register! Have you ever felt ‘dirty’, felt the need to be clean? Peter did!
* God of Love, thank You for Your word to us today. Please may we hear and obey.
“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”
Jesus is our prime example of how to live.
He is our Lord – We are to follow where He leads, do as He says, submit under His rule.
He is our Teacher – We are to listen to Him, for He has the words of eternal life. No one speaks like Him!
Jesus went about the little things, the humble jobs, the not-worthy endeavours – He had a servant heart.
And so we are to strive to act as He did, considering others more important than ourselves.
* Father God,
Please help us to be more like Jesus each day.
Please help us to have the attitude and humility necessary to wash feet as Jesus did.
Thank You for Jesus, our example.
