August 4 – Best Week Ever
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”
John 13:3-5 NIV
Jesus had all the power and authority (He was from God and He was returning to God), yet He chose to serve.
Jesus took an object that was common place (towel and basin) and made it holy.
John 13:12-17 NIV
John 13:34-35 NIV
Jesus doesn’t ask us to serve one another, He commands it!
We cannot claim to know Jesus and claim to be His followers and not obey His command to love one another.
