Servant's Hands Washing 25

Washing Feet

Jesus and Dove at his baptismSimon Peter answered the Jesus in Matthew 16.16, 'You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.'" We also read in Luke 3.22, "and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: 'You are my Son, whom I love, with you I am well pleased.'" John 1.1 states quite clearly, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Thomas said to him in John 20.28, "My Lord and my God!"

Overseers of the Flock

Bible and the WorldActs 20.28 states, "Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, [many manuscripts "of the Lord"] which he bought with his own blood. [or "with the blood of his own Son."]" And again in Romans 9.5 Paul adds, "Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! [or "Messiah, who is over all. God be forever praised!" or "Messiah. God who is over all be forever praised!"] Amen."

God Become Man

Philippians 2.6-11 states, "Who, being in very nature [or "in the form of"] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage, rather, he made himself nothing, by taking the very nature [or "the form"] of a servant, being made in human likeness."

Became Obedient to Death

Christ on the Cross"And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
