Let us consider what Jesus did for His disciples in John 13:14. The washing of someone’s feet during that time period was a lowly service and was usually given to slaves to do. Yet Jesus, who is the King of Kings, did a job of a slave and washed the feet of His apostles. This certainly left them in shock, but it also led them to think differently about things.
What can a disciple of Christ learn from the example Jesus gave? He revealed to us that ministry is not necessarily of a large scale nor is it going to be glamorous. As a matter of fact, we may be called to serve a people or a location that may not be what we initially wanted.
We need to put away our delusions of grandeur, believing that we need to serve in areas that can be classified as exotic. Most of the time, our ministries would be in areas that we live in and people that we are around daily. These ministries are the proven grounds of our faith.
If we are proven faithful in our local ministry, then the Almighty will bless us with more opportunities to serve. In this video, I again read from “My Utmost Highest” by Oswald Chambers. As you listen to my reading of this devotional consider your situation; are your eyes open to the opportunities to serve.
