Jesus Washing the Feet of His Disciples

Don’t let the opinions of others drown out the voice of Jesus in your life.  Follow Him.  The way to follow Him is to do as He did.  One of the greatest of all images we have of Jesus is of Him with a serving towel over His arm washing the feet of His disciples.

12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”  John 13:12-17

Be prepared for everyday opportunities to serve others that God brings into your life.
