In John 13:1-20, when Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, He gave us a vivid example of service flowing from love. Jesus came, not to be served, but to serve. We were saved that we might also serve. The Gospel empowers this service motivating us by faith in the reconciling work of God. We want to see His grace and mercy flow to others for His glory and their good. We serve as an expression of love and as the stewards of God’s grace. We serve with humility and self forgetfulness, empowered by a passion for God’s glory.
