Morning Coffee 1/18/14 You Are Not Too Good!
”After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet.” (John 13:12-14 NLT)
Good day family! Jesus washing the disciple’s feet is an awesome visual example of Jesus showing that He came to serve! Since He is our perfect example we must follow.
In those times washing of the feet was done by the lowest of the servants in the house. Guest would come from a long journey and the servant would remove their sandals and would wash the guest feet. Remember at this point in history there were no street cleaners and if you didn’t have a horse, you walked everywhere so the feet of a visiting guest were covered with all the dirt and mud from the journey. Foot washing was not a pleasant thing to do!
Now! If Jesus the son of God, humble himself to wash the disciples feet, we must have that same mindset! I don’t care what title you have, what degrees you have hanging on your wall in your office or what seminary you graduated from! You are not too good to get on your knees and serve! If the church bathroom needs cleaning, get some gloves, disinfectant, and a mop and clean away! If God shows you a homeless person that needs help, go and help them! They are human too!
“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet.” (John 13:13-14 NLT)
You are not too good!
