The Last Supper

  • He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. Then he came to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?" Jesus answered him, "You don't know what I am doing now, but you will understand later." Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet!" John 13:4'8 WEB.

    When they gathered in the upper room that evening, only Jesus understood it would be His last supper here. It was customary before a Passover meal to ceremonially wash at home, but as you walked on the dusty roads to go to the supper, your feet would get dirty. On arrival, a servant would typically wash the guest's feet to refresh them before the meal. According to Jewish tradition, a Jewish servant was not even asked to wash people's feet, for it was considered beneath them. This lowly task was assigned to gentile servants.

    On the evening of the last supper, there was no servant present to wash the guest's feet. So the disciples looked around at each other, then they all sat down with dirty feet. They apparently felt too important to perform such a menial task. Jesus watched them all sit down, then He arose, wrapped a towel around His waist, and began to wash their feet one at a time, even those of Judas Iscariot who betrayed Him.

    They sat in embarrassed silence while Jesus washed the feet of one disciple after another until He came to Peter. You could count on Peter to speak his mind, and Peter rebuked Jesus, the King of all Kings, because He was acting like a Servant. The disciples didn't understand then, but later, they understood after the events that followed that night came to pass.

    Jesus could see what was coming before it arrived. The disciples couldn't, yet it all worked out just like it was supposed to. God doesn't tell us all the details, and if He did, we wouldn't understand it all, just like the disciples. God is the General, and He tells us what we need to know so we can do our part in His plan. He also instructs other people, then He takes care of putting it all together. Only He can see the entire picture.

    There have been many times in my life when I didn't understand what was going on. How could this event even happen? Then after the storm passed, it all made sense. Looking back on the events, I can see how God used circumstances to steer me like the rudder of a ship to get me where I needed to go. I wouldn't be here writing this if I hadn't first been there.

    You may be facing something that you don't understand, and you may feel like God is doing the wrong thing or nothing at all. You may question, "Why is this happening?" Don't panic. Give it time. Things may be lining up behind the scenes. God reserves the right to be God, and sometimes He does things without explaining them to us. He knows what He is doing, where this is going, and how all this fits together. Our part is to pray and trust Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for guiding me today. Please put me where I need to be to serve You the best. Cut me loose from the things that hold me back. Speak to me in a way that I understand and fulfill Your perfect will in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: He is risen! We pray that you all have a most joyful Resurrection Day celebration! This morning, we will be hosting our RHM Live Online church service. This is a special time of worship, prayer, fellowship and an inspiring message. All are welcome! Here is the link to join: RHM Live
