DAILY VERSE
Jesus] rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
(John 13:4–5)
 
DEVOTION
This act of Christ symbolizes the heart each of us should long to possess. Humbling ourselves to serve others leads not to a lower status, but to a status Jesus assures is greater. Throughout the New Testament we can see illustrations of how serving others is esteemed in Jesus’ eyes. It is the very heart the He came to this earth with and it was this attitude that drew people to him. It’s a form of surrender, to allow Christ to love others through us.
