The Last Meal

There are countless examples of Christ humbly serving humanity throughout the four gospels. My personal favorite, however, is the story of Christ washing the disciples’ feet. In the disciple’s minds, this was just another Passover meal. They had no idea this would be their last meal with their beloved Jesus. They didn’t know, but John tells us that Jesus did.

Our True Identity

In Colossians 3:12–13 Paul reveals our true identity in Christ, as “God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved” and then says our response to this truth should be to “put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another.” As Christians, we are called to be like Christ, a humble servant. We are expected to serve those around us, even those who would betray us, not considering ourselves better than others.

Prayer

Pray this with me: Father God, we come to you today confessing our pride and desire to be served. Help us to live as you lived, humbly, pouring out our lives as an offering for you and those you love. May we believe we are who you say we are and live as if it is true. Amen.
