“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you” (John 13:13-15 NIV).
Lesson of Humility
We should not only faithfully serve God, but we should also provide for the needs of other people. Christians should help their fellow believers and seek for their welfare.
It is important that God’s saints work in unity, and they should understand that “whatever happens to one believer has happens to all believers!”
In other words, no Christian should be obsessed with his or her position (or personal integrity) and consider others to be inferiors.
While we cannot all be leaders, we are all called to serve one another – and we must do so with all humility and sincerity. Every Christian must honor the true symbol of Christianity – which is love!
Prayer to serve with Humility
Dear Jesus Christ, I receive your grace by faith to love other people genuinely.
I want to make positive contributions to other people’s lives.
Please help me to achieve this!
Empower me to support my fellow Christians whatever I can offer within my capacity.
Let me have genuine interest in the success of others, and let me contribute my quotas of positive efforts into their lives.
Please, help me to represent you well here on earth so that you can be pleased and bless me.
Please let your love dwell richly in my heart from now on and always.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
