The Joy of Washing Feet!

 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. John 13:14-15 ESV

We don’t ordinarily wash feet in our society today. But in Jesus’ day, this was a common, though somewhat unimportant practice. Like taking out the trash, it was one rarely noticed (unless it was forgotten for a while!). Often, we are looking for a gigantic way or some well-advertised program to demonstrate the love of Jesus. But God is calling each of us to demonstrate the enormous love of our Savior through small and seemingly insignificant acts of service. Jesus commands us to love one another and to wash one another’s feet. As a bonus, He promises that when we do what He asks, we will experience a joy that no one can ever take away. Maybe that was the joy that He experienced which carried Him through the tears of Gethsemane and the agony of the cross. So, this morning’s question is, “Whose feet is Jesus asking me to wash today?”

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
