A Servant's Heart 

 

Have you ever stopped to think about the ministry of Jesus? He didn’t come to be a conquering King; but instead, He came as a servant. This is intimately demonstrated after the Lord’s Supper when Jesus girded himself with a towel and began to wash His disciples’ feet. For Jesus to do this meant lowering himself among society and among His peers, to do a job that only the lowest people in society did.

Today, we find it quite hard to lower our standards to the servitude position that Jesus did, but that is what he requires of us. In fact, in John 13:14, Jesus tells His disciples this, “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.” This valuable lesson taught the disciples that they were not better than anyone else. In further taught them that we should have a servant’s heart and desire to help our brethren. Earlier in this passage, the disciples were arguing about who should sit where in the kingdom of God. They each felt in their own way that they were better than the other. So, it was a surprise to see Jesus perform such a lowly task.

How are you going through life today? Do you feel that God should be blessing you more, that you should be recognized for all your great deeds? Friend, life is about serving and being a witness of the glorious love of our Lord. We should take a step down and kneel down and wash our brother’s and sister’s feet. Showing them, we care and that we love them. Just like Jesus did. In fact, He commanded it!
