“What if God visited to you today and said, “Here. It’s all yours. Everything. I put it all under your feet. Anything you want done. The universe will be your servant. Just speak and it will respond.”
…I bet you wouldn’t do what Jesus did… ”Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power.” So he cured all disease, ended all suffering, erased all evil, wiped away every tear. He answered all our prayers. He stopped the nonsense and rebellion and asserted his lordship.
No. Not this God.
“Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power… so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”
Love is what God is after and power has no power to prompt love. So behold the Master of the Universe, the Ancient of Days, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies: Jesus Christ the Foot Washer.”
