Meditation on John 13:1-15,21
Loving to the End
Written by Sharon Garlough Brown: Barefoot p369
- Imagine Jesus kneeling before you, looking into your eyes, and reaching for your dust covered, unwashed feet. Do you offer your feet to him? Why or why not? If you resist, what is behind your resistance? Offer your thoughts and feelings to God in prayer.
- Picture a person you find most difficult to love and serve. Watch Jesus kneeling to wash his or her feet. How do you feel? Offer your thoughts and feelings to God in prayer.
- Now Jesus rises and hands you the basin and the towel. He invites you to kneel and wash the feet of the one who has betrayed you or has made life difficult for you. How do you respond? Offer your thoughts and feelings to God in prayer.
- Is there any concrete act of love and service that Jesus is calling you to undertake in his name?
What most stood out for you in the time of personal reflection?
