Jesus Strengthens His Followers

Passage: John 13:1–5 and 12–17
Service Type:

: 1 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for
him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were
in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love. 2 The evening
meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot,
son of Simon, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things
under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
4so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel
around his waist. 5 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…12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and
returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he
asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is
what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you
also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you
should do as I have done for you. 16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater
than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
17Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
