At My Feet | Forgiveness

Jesus demonstrates how to receive and then offer forgiveness.

Jesus is in a small, hidden room with His disciples. They don't know it yet, but Jesus knows that it will be their Last Supper together before the cross. It's personal. It's Jesus' last chance to say what needs to be said.

We all eventually think these thoughts at some time or another, especially after the death of a loved one. We might wish we had said "I love you," or "I appreciate all you did for me."

"I forgive you." That's a little more difficult. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. For Jesus, the entire theme of the evening is forgiveness.

For the auditory learners among the disciples, He tells them He will be with them through the bread and the wine - and thereby offer forgiveness. Jesus gives the kinesthetic, hands-on person a way to really feel His forgiveness after He is gone by breaking bread with them. He visually tells the disciples "I forgive you," by hand washing the dirt off of their feet.

If you haven't had communion lately, think about attending church for Easter. Jesus is waiting for you.

"Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me."
John 15:4, World English Bible

Building a website which will support and sustain.

Journey with us as we offer stories and devotionals to support ministerial workers, their families and their church or synagogue members.

We are spending time thinking about how God has put church workers in a special position of labor and love.
We look to offer spiritual support.

We can identify.

From personal experience, we can offer to be a place where the ministers can be ministered to.

"But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;" Matthew 26:20

Think about how you can offer spiritual and emotional support to your minister or rabbi.
