He Humbled Himself (John 13:1-17)

IMG_0017-0On Sunday, January 31, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “He Humbled Himself” from John 13:1-17.

Jesus washed his disciples’s feet to point them to the fact that he had washed us clean from sin and death on the cross.

1. You Were Washed—The love Jesus expresses to his twelve disciples is also expressed to us who believe today. His washing of their feet points to the cleansing provided through his future death on the cross, called our definitive sanctification, by which God’s people are separated from the sinful world as members of his covenant community.

2. You Are Being Cleansed—Jesus’ washing of his disciples’s feet also points to the believer’s ongoing need of forgiveness–then and now–called progressive sanctification.

3. Serve So Others Might Be Clean—Humble service to your brothers and sisters in Christ is the correct application of Christ’s command to wash one another’s feet.
