Who’s feet are you washing?
John 13:14-15 was the daily scripture that came across my screen this morning. I kept reading it over and over and over, these red words of Christ. He showed us an example of service by washing His disciples’ feet.
In the days of our Lord there were no luxury red bottoms, no NIKE sneakers, and no paved roads. They didn’t travel in Benzes, Beamers, or even Cadillacs, they walked. In my imagination, and thanks to the Bible series- my memory, I can visualize the Savior and the twelve apostles dredging through mixed terrain in open sandals. For Christ to wash these feet… With whatever smell, whatever injury, whatever deposit, whatever dirt, we must also take care to discard condition and serve. We have to look past the rock and see the gem. We have to see through the coal to the diamond, realize the value of oil, and shuck the shell to reveal the pearl.
Some of us touch many, and cringe. Some of us touch many an remember. Jesus has washed us too. (And if we are honest…we are still being washed daily!)
Wake up and serve. Ask God to show you who you will serve today. Each day… Move closer to or in your purpose. Damascus isn’t the only road of conversion…walk your road.
