Summary: You are God’s child. Know who you are, whose you are, and the guarantee of your future.
John 13:1-4 tells us “Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”
Jesus knew who He was. Jesus knew His position. Jesus knew His purpose. Jesus knew the guarantee of His future.
What about you? Whose are you? Do you know unto whom you belong? Do you know your specific and sanctioned station of ministry and calling? Do you understand the solid footing upon which you stand? Do you grasp that nothing will remove your name from the Lamb’s Book of Life? It was out of a firm understanding of these things that Jesus took that next step: taking up the towel. It was His clear understanding that allowed Him to do what seemed unthinkable: wash dirty feet.
Start today by reviewing the fact that you are God’s child. Begin by rethinking what you have been asked to do. Center yourself by knowing where you will ultimately end up. Taking today’s next step will be easier.
