John 13:1-17

Good morning! Blessings on this beautiful day! No wind this morning and it is warmer! yippee! I could not resist showing you the beautiful sunrise that God gave us this morning. I feel like He is just saying, "Wake up and taste all that I have planned for you, if you will only have the eyes to see it."
Below these first two pictures is the photo of Will's foot and the hands of Wes symbolizing the washing of the disciples feet. The next photo is the drawing by Wes.

John 13:1-17 (New Century Version)
1 It was almost time for the Passover Feast.
Jesus knew that it was time for him to leave this world and go back to the Father. He had always loved those who were his own in the world, and he loved them all the way to the end.
2 Jesus and his followers were at the evening meal.
The devil had already persuaded Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to turn against Jesus.
3 Jesus knew that the Father had given him power over everything and that he had come from God and was going back to God.
4 So during the meal Jesus stood up and took off his outer clothing.
Taking a towel, he wrapped it around his waist.
5 Then he poured water into a bowl and began to wash the followers' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 Jesus came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
7 Jesus answered, "You don't understand now what I am doing, but you will understand later."
8 Peter said, "No, you will never wash my feet."
Jesus answered, "If I don't wash your feet, you are not one of my people."
9 Simon Peter answered, "Lord, then wash not only my feet, but wash my hands and my head, too!"
10 Jesus said, "After a person has had a bath, his whole body is clean. He needs only to wash his feet. And you men are clean, but not all of you."
11 Jesus knew who would turn against him, and that is why he said, "Not all of you are clean."
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and sat down again. He asked, "Do you understand what I have just done for you?
13 You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and you are right, because that is what I am.
14 If I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other's feet.
15 I did this as an example so that you should do as I have done for you.
16 I tell you the truth, a servant is not greater than his master. A messenger is not greater than the one who sent him.
17 If you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

The song for today is about "His hands" by Nickel Creek. Listen to the words closely. Beautiful.
Blessings on your day. Amy
