  • He was millionaire when he

graduated from High School.

around the world.

  • Became burdened for all the hurting people of Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Made a decision to enter the mission field.

  • Wrote in his Bible – “No Reserve”.
  • Went study at Yale University.
  • Started a prayer group with his friend.
  • By the time he graduated,

out of 1,300 students,

1,000 were in prayer groups.


Was offered a high paying job but pursued the call of God on his life.

  • Sailed to China to work with the Muslims.
  • Stopped in Egypt to study


  • Contacted spinal meningitis.
  • Died within a month at the

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.


# 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.


# 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.

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.”

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.


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.


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.

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.

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.

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?

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.”

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.

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.”

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

(Heb. 12:1-3)

  • What is that joy?
  • You and me.

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.
