It was just before the Passover festival, Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and to go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them as only he could, to the end.
The evening meal was in progress and the adversary had already prompted Judas the son of Simon Iscariot to betray him. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash your feet, you have no part with me.” The lowest, most unclean part of a human being is their feet. It is when we are in the lowest and unclean moments of our lives that it is still his good pleasure to wash us clean. So as we go deeper into the Lenten journey, do not be afraid to go to him in prayer, confess your sin and the unforgiveness that you may be carrying; become a part of the only one who is able to restore and resurrect. John 13:1-8
Happy Resurrection Season!
