Scripture: John 13:1-13
There is a greater message in the washing of the disciples feet by Jesus than we first see. Jesus knows He has the power over everything and everybody. Instead of demanding that His needs be met He prepares Himself to wash His disciples dirty, grimy, smelly feet. To find joy and happiness that comes from having that surrendered heart and that servant spirit, three steps must be taken. Find out what they are.
"When Jesus washed the disciples' feet, He was not primarily dealing with feet; He was illustrating a person's heart." --Dr. Merritt
