“The Full Extent of His Love” John 13:1-17

Before we can rejoice in the beauty of the cross or grasp the power of the resurrection we must be willing to see the servanhood of Jesus. Everything He did from conception to ascension was in service of the Father but also in service of humanity, Jesus teaches us very clearly in today’s text, John 13:1-17, that we serve God when we serve each other. In fact, John writes that the full extent of Jesus’ love was not given in the miracles, the cross or even the resurrection, but the full extent of His love was poured out when He served the apostles by washing their feet.
