I think of what Jesus must have felt—knowing that the weight of the world rested on His shoulders, the weight of our sins. My sins! Even as He was overwhelmed by sorrow and knew that painful scourging, humiliating mocking, and excruciating crucifixion lay ahead, He didn’t waver in His purpose. He served! He took off His outer garment and began washing the disciples’ feet, knowing His time was near. What an incredible example of His amazing love.
He served all the way to His death. He died for me! He died for you! And if I am to be His follower, I must take the focus off of my circumstances and wash the feet of others! I must serve others in His love. I’m ready – are you?
