Jesus washes His Disciples’ Feet

John 12: 44-50

Day 242

Guided reflection:

I wonder why this was not recorded in the other gospels, but John makes sure we get the whole story.   At the Last Supper, no one did the servants job of washing their dusty feet, do Jesus does it!   Jesus uses this act to be an object lesson about servant hood.  Jesus wants us to know that it is when we serve others, we are serving Christ.   Jesus wants them (and us) to know that if we receive Him, we receive God – they are one.   And, Jesus wants us to know that our greatness is correlated to our humbleness in God’s book! 

Guided prayer:

“I want to be a servant for Jesus too.  I want to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  I want to be made clean through Jesus’ words.  Amen.”
