Let Jesus Wash Your Feet
8Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
Once we have accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are bathed all over, and cleansed by His blood once and for all eternity! His blood has perfected us forever (Hebrews 10:14), and we only need to wash our feet because we walk in the world and our feet pick up dust and dirt, causing us to stumble.... by washing our feet with a deeper revelation of Himself through His Word. Beloved, this is what gives us victory in our daily walk!
HEAR:Happy... I haven't been REALLY happy in a long long time. I've been so concerned with service. I'm serving him at home. I'm serving him at work. I'm serving him by writing my blogs... But...
I notice here, a pre-requisite to service. It's being washed by Him! Not just once. Daily. Washed daily in his Word and Presence. It's not enough just to read a passage of devotional and check that off the list. That's not His presence.
I must spend time in worship and prayer AND Word. Actually reading his Word. If I want this result of "Happy".
DO:I'm going to spend more time BEING with Jesus, and less time DOING for Jesus!
