“Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” (John 13:6 NIV)

Simon Peter was shocked and offended by Jesus’ act of washing his feet. He thought it was inappropriate and demeaning for his Master to do such a thing. He refused to let Jesus wash his feet, thinking he was honoring him.

But Jesus told him that unless he let him wash his feet, he would have no part with him. This meant that Peter would miss out on the relationship and the blessing that Jesus wanted to give him. Jesus also wanted Peter to understand the deeper meaning of his act, which pointed to his death on the cross for the cleansing of their sins.

Peter then changed his mind and asked Jesus to wash not only his feet but also his hands and his head. He wanted to have a full share with Jesus and to receive all that he had to offer.

How’s your relationship with Jesus? Jesus invites you to have a deeper and intimate relationship with him. He also desires that you grow in humility and servanthood.

“Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.’ ”
John 13:7

May God help us to be humble and serve as he did. Amen.
