John 13

Click For Today’s Audio


“For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

– John 13:15

After completing the selfless act of washing His disciples feet Jesus said, “I’ve given you an example… you should do as I have done for you.” Does this mean we should wash feet? Perhaps, though I think it means far more than that. The actions of Jesus were wholly and completely selfless. He came and willingly laid down his life, therefore we ought also to lay down ours. Jesus as we saw previously that the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep, in John 10, here again we are reminded of the importance of selfless service as disciples and followers of Jesus.
