Mass of the Lord’s Supper

April 18, 2014


Why has Jesus commanded us to do as he did? To “wash one another’s feet”? Because at the heart of our Christian life is service. The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve; There is no greater love than to lay down your life for another. Jesus’ entire life is at the service of others – of the Father – of us.

But service is really a difficult thing, isn’t it? It is so easy for our own pride to sway our thoughts and actions. This IS what happens to Judas, is it not? His own desire for wealth and power? The concern for his own person more than others? Its what happened to Peter. And it is what happens to so many of us.

Of course, it is possible to get it all right, but listen in and you will find it is never so easy.
