Do you know what I have done to you? John 13:12
Jesus had just washed the disciples' feet and He was preparing to give them a lesson on servanthood and humility. But rather than focus on service and the example Jesus set for us, I want to look at some very encouraging truths in this one simple question.
Jesus knows we don't get it.
We often fake and pretend like we understand what God is doing. We don't want to look like the only one who doesn't "get" it, after all. Truth is, we know and understand very little, and then it's usually because God explained it to us. Which brings me to my next point-
Sometimes He explains it all.
In this passage, He walks the disciples through what He did, why He did it, and what they should do now. Awesome!
We are worth teaching.
Jesus Christ, infinite Savior and God of the universe, took His time, used His energy to instill a truth in this group of men. He has deemed us worthy of receiving His amazing truth.
He expects us to put the lesson into practice.
Jesus never wastes His effort. Once He's taught us, and we get it, we need to get busy.
