Serve Like Jesus

The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him (John 13:2-5).

Why did Jesus was His followers' feet?
  1. Because He loved them (John 13:1)
  2. Because He was focused on the needs of others (Mark 10:45)
  3. Because He understood that true greatness comes from serving others (Mark 10:43).
Followers of Christ should serve as He did:
  • With the right motivation: Serve others because of love.
  • With the right attitude: Serve others with humility.
  • With the right knowledge: Serve others to achieve true greatness.
