Scandalous Service

               Text:   John 13:1-17

  1. Preparing to Serve… 

    1. Laying Aside…

      1. Pride / Ego

      2. Status / Reputation

      3. Entitlement

    2. Girded with a towel

      1. Humility

      2. Vulnerability
         

  2. Scandalous Service…

    1. Jesus washed their feet

      1. God in the flesh stripped to the waist and wrapped in a towel   --  a demonstration of humility

      2. God in the flesh kneeled before his disciples to clean the grime and crud from their feet   --   a demonstration of servanthood

      3. God in the flesh washed the feet of Judas, knowing that Judas would betray Him  --  a demonstration of loving your enemies
         

  3. Jesus Taught…

    1. Do you know what I have done to you?

      1. I gave you an example

      2. Do as I have done to you

        1. Not simply what I have done!
           

  4. Application…

    1. Servants DO as the Master does

      1. Follow His Example

      2. Exercise Humility

      3. Serve Others

    2. Knowing is NOT enough!

      1. You are blessed if you DO this.
         

  5. If you desire to be like Christ, you will serve others.
