“Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” John 13.8
There is a lot of glitter around the season of Christmas, some of it wonderful but some distracting. In the midst of it all it can be easy to miss the central message that Jesus, the Saviour, has come into the world. It is also true that within this message we can lose the personal impact of it – that Jesus the Saviour has come for us personally.
It was deeply personal for each of the disciples when Jesus washed their feet. It was not simply a demonstration for them to observe or a beneficial action for other people, but an incredibly meaningful moment for each of them. However, unless they chose to apply it personally they were going to miss out on so much – a relationship with Jesus.
This is our challenge over Christmas; to find again the relevance of the Saviour coming for us – for you. Jesus wants you to reflect on the relevance of this for you; to make it personal and to discover the joy of being part of his story.
