The Provision of God
Last Sunday afternoon in Messy Church we thought about foot washing and King Jesus who washed our feet, even though this was a lowly task usually preserved for slaves, servants and the youngest present. Jesus’ example challenges us to love one another as He has loves us. He provides us with a very practical demonstration of how to do faith.
In the same way, today’s Scripture readings confront us with a God who humbles us with goodness and readiness to respond to our needs and dilemmas with care, in very relevant and practical ways.
One of my devotions during the week posed the question,
“How would you feel and respond if Jesus actually washed your feet?” Figuratively or literally?
