John 13 1 12

  • Friends found his Bible.

  • Found two more words added.

  • “No Regrets.”

  • Would you not want to end your life with “No Regrets”?

  • Jesus’ give us an example of how to do that.

  • The keys to a fruitful and

    fulfilling life.

John 13 1 12

  • # 1. Foot washing was a common practice.

  • They wore sandals so

    feet became dirty.

  • Common practice in

    every Jewish home to

    have basin and towel at

    the door to clean the feet.

John 13 1 12

# 2. Foot washing was considered to

be a menial task.

  • The host will never do this job.

  • Neither would a Jewish slave.

  • It was a task for Gentile slaves.

  • This explains why the disciples did not wash the feet of others.

  • They were too busy arguing who was the greatest.

John 13 1 12

  • We spend most our energy doing things to define our identity.

  • Our identity is not found in what we do but in whom you are by the grace of God.

  • Eph. 1:4-5 – “Chosen, His sons.”

  • Eph. 2:7-10 – “Saved, God’s workmanship.”

John 13 1 12

  • If we want to serve Jesus, than we need to have a revelation of who we are in God.

  • I am what I am by the grace of God.

  • Out of who I am in God, I serve Him.

  • Jesus did the most humbling task in that culture.

  • He bows before His

    disciples and washes

    their feet.

John 13 1 12

  • Jesus was not insecure about His identity.

  • He knew something about Himself which others could not see.

  • John notes this in v.3.

    a. Jesus knew that the Father had

    put all things under His power.

    > Here in the upper room was the power centre of both heaven and earth.

John 13 1 12

  • Jesus was not the helpless victim of a plot but a willing, voluntary Lamb slain before the foundation of the world. – John 10:18

  • Jesus knew His authority in God.

John 13 1 12

b. Jesus knew His commission.

  • Jesus was not acting on His own initiative.

  • He was sent by the Father with a specific mission to accomplish.

  • Do you know why you are here?

  • Do you have a sense of mission in your life?

  • God has a mission for every person in this church.

John 13 1 12

  • There can be no greater satisfaction than discovering that mission and pursuing it with all your heart.

  • Being sent implies backing.

  • We are backed by God Himself.

John 13 1 12

c. Jesus knew where He was going.

  • Sometimes we get so caught up with daily activities that we forget who we are and where we are going.

  • Soon we are going to see the King.

  • Does this truth grip my heart?

John 13 1 12

  • In Rev. 4:6,10 we will stand before the Lord and throw our crowns.

  • Are you doing something that makes an eternal difference?

  • Remember Paul’s advice:

  • 1 Cor.15:58- “Your labor is not in vain.”

John 13 1 12

  • In v.1, Jesus knew that the time for Him to lay down his life was very near.

  • He wanted to show His disciples something amazing about love.

  • Love will cause a person to sacrifice personal comfort and gain for the well being of others.

John 13 1 12

  • Love motivated Jesus to pay the ultimate price for our redemption.

  • Love will win the lost sinner.

  • Without the Holy Spirit, we cannot love other people – Rom.5:5

  • God sees something in

    people that is so precious

    to Him.

  • 1John 3:16 – “You are why I paid the price.”

John 13 1 12

  • Jesus endured the cross for the joy that was set before Him.

    (Heb. 12:1-3)

  • What is that joy?

  • You and me.

John 13 1 12

  • We need to change our attitudes and our way of thinking in regards to serving God.

  • We need to have the mind and heart of Christ if want to have a fruitful and fulfilling life.
