Devotion for Today
Following the Feet of Jesus
Only the lowliest servants washed feet. But that’s what Jesus was doing. He fetched some water, got down on the ground and began washing the feet of His disciples.
Instead of finding ourselves at the feet of Jesus in today’s devotion, we find Jesus at the feet of His followers. This idea flabbergasted Peter in a way I think many of us relate to: We feel unworthy.
Why would God care about something as trivial as my life? In the grand scheme of things, there’s nothing special about me. God has more important things to do… have you ever thought that?
There are billions of people on earth, but God still cares for each of us individually. In Matthew 10:29-31, Jesus said, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
First Peter 5:7 reminds us to cast all our cares on Jesus because He cares for us. Not some of them or the really important ones, but all our anxieties. Psalm 139:13 tells us that God formed us in our mother’s womb. He cares about every aspect of our lives. And He loves us deeply.
He loves us deeply enough to get on the ground and do the job of a lowly servant. Deeply enough to die on the cross in our place (Romans 5:8). And that’s how He wants us to love others (John 13:14-15, 34-35).
Jesus loves us deeply enough to get on the ground and do the job of a lowly servant. Click To Tweet
