The Passover Meal
Jesus was hours away from His death and resurrection, planned from the foundation of the world. He wanted to share His deepest thoughts with His disciples. He wanted to tell them about the new covenant, institute communion, share His heart with them and His plan of salvation. And, what were the disciples fussing over? Position. So, He washed their feet.
“And they began to argue among themselves as to who would have the highest rank in the coming kingdom.” (Luke 22:24; TLB) “So He rose from the table, took off his outer garment, and tied a towel around his waist…and began to wash the disciples’ feet.” (John 13:4 & 5b; GNT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- We are entering the holiest season for Christians, culminating in the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus!
- Do we want to be those that commune with Christ and hear about His plans and His ways or will we be like the disciples that night and worry about how successful we can be? Tell Him about the relationship you want to have with Him.
- Think about how He serves us every day that we live. Commit to live a life of service to Him and to others.
- Get your Bible out and read Matthew 26, Mark 14, Luke 22 and John 13.
A prayer you can pray:
Dear Lord, I don’t want to miss any part of what You are saying and doing right now. I am convinced that we are living in exceptional days and there is much You want the Church to know. Please help me not to worry about my own fame, but to be one that makes You famous! Show me what You want me to do and empower me to serve You every day. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
I desire to know Him and make Him known!
