“After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them.”-John 13:12-17
Friends, I encourage you to take the words of Christ and embrace them. Follow Him and the examples from His life He set for us. Pick up your cross daily and follow Him always, every single day. Determine to be steadfast in wholehearted obedience and devotion to Him.
Being a servant of the Lord is not just a seasonal thing; It’s an every moment of every single day kind of thing.
I implore you to open your heart to Him today and always.
May God bless you abundantly in this Holiday Season.
Much love to you all,
Linda A. Knowles
