Serving our community

iStock_000017068165_LargeOn Jesus’ last night with His friends, He could have basked in their love, felt sorry for himself or tried to escape. Rather, He did something strangely profound: stripped down like a humble servant, Jesus washed the feet of His friends. Jesus made his intention very clear. “If I have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet,” Jesus said. “I have given you an example, that you should do just as I have done to you” (John 13:14-15).

God’s call to serve others means meeting people’s immediate, physical and emotional needs before we settle questions of faith, belief, and doctrine. “If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and filled,’ without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?” (James 2:15-16).
