Pastor Mark Shupe
The washing of the disciples’ feet certainly was a crowning demonstration of love in action. Jesus had already told His followers that the greatest among them would be their servant and that even He, the Son of God, had come to this earth not to be served, but to serve (see Mark 10:43-45).
Much of life this side of heaven is filled with the unexpected, unplanned and unwanted. Life often does not go as we plan and desire. I don’t see anywhere in Scripture where it says, “then someone had a great plan.” But, the Bible clearly reminds us that God does have a great plan that includes each of us.
