Following Jesus

John 13:14-15
If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”

Jesus, the Son of God, was on his knees washing the feet of his followers! Instead of being a mighty warrior, the Messiah was a suffering servant. He is our blueprint…our model for living our lives. This is quite different from the model given by our consumerist culture…Hollywood…professional sports, etc. Until we follow Jesus as servants to others, true inner peace and lasting happiness are impossible. How are you being called to serve?

Suggested song of the day– “Make Me a Channel” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
