Text: John 13:1-17
Preparing to Serve…
Pride / Ego
Status / Reputation
Girded with a towel
Jesus washed their feet
God in the flesh stripped to the waist and wrapped in a towel -- a demonstration of humility
God in the flesh kneeled before his disciples to clean the grime and crud from their feet -- a demonstration of servanthood
God in the flesh washed the feet of Judas, knowing that Judas would betray Him -- a demonstration of loving your enemies
Do you know what I have done to you?
I gave you an example
Do as I have done to you
Not simply what I have done!
Servants DO as the Master does
Follow His Example
Knowing is NOT enough!
You are blessed if you DO this.
If you desire to be like Christ, you will serve others.
