Here in John 13 we see Jesus teach an amazing lesson. He, being the Son of God, stoops down to wash His disciples feet. He then tells them that this is a pattern for them to follow. That pattern was more than washing each other’s feet. What happened next was what He was after.
Jesus understood that God uses servants. So before Jesus could be promoted to heaven through His death and resurrection, He served. God promotes those who are serving. When you feel like God is ready to take you to a new level but it’s just not happening, you need to look around and see who you can serve. The last will be the first. That’s always the way of kingdom. So start serving today. Really serving. And see where God takes you.
