Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 215

  1. “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet” (John 13:8).

How can we allow the perfect Son of God to become sin for us, to sacrifice Himself on our behalf and somehow give to us what only He could deserve? Peter’s resistance isn’t hard to identify with when you grasp its true nature. Jesus just can’t be doing what He’s doing for us! No servant would sit comfortably while his Master did the serving work. Guilt would immediately propel that servant to action. Peter cannot envision the importance of this moment and what it truly means, but his issue isn’t that his feet were clean. He knew better than that. He just couldn’t see Jesus serving Him–and perhaps when we understand who Jesus is and what He has done, we will (for a time) feel the same way.
