Thursday, March 29th. John 13:5

Our devotions this Lenten season have been written by members of Faith Lutheran Church.  Today’s devotion is by Alexis Salazar. Also, if you would like to join our staff in praying the liturgy for Responsive Prayer/Suffrages just click here.

 

Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples feet.  John 13:5 

 

In this verse Jesus washes his disciples’ feet. Jesus, the Son of God, was not above doing the lowest tasks (washing of feet) for his disciples.

 

He was humble enough to share in this intimate moment with them.

 

He, who is above all, put himself below them in order to show them how to treat others.

 

As we go forward each day, let us use this as an example of how we treat others that we interact with.

 

Rather than judge others and think we are better than they are, put ourselves in Jesus’ position and humbly bow to wash their feet.

 

Let us pray:  Heavenly Father, please guide our church through service and togetherness. Please protect us and help us to do your will.  We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
