A King Who Serves


Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

What do you think of when you hear the word servant? We read in John 13 at the Last Supper that Jesus took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Imagine…the King of kings takes the lowest position to wash the disciple’s, well…feet. It says that Jesus FINISHED. This means he washed all their feet—the feet that would soon abandon him—even the feet he KNEW would soon rush to betray him. The God of the universe kneeling low, towel in hand, washing the dirty feet of sinful men. At the end of the passage Jesus says, “Slaves are not greater than their master, nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message.” You see, we ARE His messengers, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. And as we go out let’s remember we are not GREATER than the one who GAVE us the message. Let’s follow Jesus, our servant King.
