Repeat after me

serving othersWe learn by repetition of movements and information. Jesus teaches us by repeated words and actions throughout the course of his ministry. And, although he is Master, he wants us to be like him.

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.
