For I have given you an example – you should do just as I have done for you.
John 13:15 NET
The emphasis today is on the distance between us and Jesus. The Biblical emphasis is the closeness between us and him.
Jesus performs a miracle and the disciples follow him from a distance. Jesus serves, and has their feet in his face.
Be like Jesus, give the example of what a Christian should be like, and people will get close to you.
