The Humbled

Encounters with Jesus – Part 2: The Humbled

On a scale of 1 to 10, how humble would you say you are? You might be thinking it’s a trick question, because if you give yourself a good score, maybe you really aren’t as humble as you think you are! Jesus was a very different kind of leader. He modeled humility. He humbly and unconditionally served his followers in the most lowliest of human tasks – he washed their feet. There aren’t many leaders today who will concern themselves with menial tasks “beneath their level or position” in life. But you couldn’t spend time with Jesus without noticing some very distinctive character traits – like humility. People who encountered Jesus came away from the experience changed. This week we’ll look at what bigger purpose Jesus had in washing his disciples’ feet that would change our outlook on life.
