A new year awaits us as we leave the old behind. A time to reflect on times past, anticipate, and endeavor to make 2018 count. With that in mind, I am reblogging, hoping to preserve both old and new. This one’s dedicated to my husband, as he continues to show me what its like to be a servant. Thank you Dave!
“Never shall you wash my feet!”
This was too much for Peter. Too much to think that the Lord would want to washhisfeet. This was the Christ, the Messiah.
This was too much for the proud and impulsive disciple to submit to such a humbling act of service.
This was the very Son of God! Peter knew in his heart he should be the one washing Jesus feet!
Yet, when told he could have no part in the life of Jesus without being washed by Him, Peter’s heart was changed.
“Lord, then wash not only my feet, but my hands and my head.”
Peter thought he knew his own heart. He thought he was strong and brave enough to follow Jesus anywhere; even lay down his life for him. Yet the proud and self-righteous disciple fearfully denied Jesus three times that very night. Just as Jesus had warned.
