Jesus Knew

foot_washingThe Father had put everything in Jesus’ control. Jesus knew that. He also knew that he had come from God and was going back to God. So he got up from the table, removed his outer clothes, took a towel, and tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel that he had tied around his waist. When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter asked him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus answered Peter, “You don’t know now what I’m doing. You will understand later.” (John 13:3-7 GWT) We often don't understand what the Lord does in our lives, nor why, until later. But He reveals it to us when we're ready. ©Word-Strong_2013
