As we enter into the last week of Jesus’ life, we start to take a look at the last few days of Jesus’ life. We should be amazed at how Jesus handled himself in his last hours. If any of us knew (as Jesus did) the torture we were about to face, we would have been making people serve us, sleeping all day and eating as much food as we possibly could. Instead, Jesus spent his last hours teaching and serving His disciples.
That’s exactly the example we see today from Jesus as we look at him washing the disciples’ feet.
