Servant Leadership (John 13:1-17)

Terry Coon, June 20, 2021
Part of the Encountering Christ series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

PASSAGE: JOHN 13:1-17

CENTRAL TRUTH:
Jesus RE-DEFINES what it means to be a servant.

TWO TRUTHS FROM THE FOOTWASHING OF JESUS IN JOHN 13:
To experience UNION WITH CHRIST, we must accept His RADICALLY HUMBLE SERVICE by faith.
To demonstrate our UNION WITH CHRIST, we must imitate His RADICAL SERVICE towards one another.
CLOSING THOUGHT:
But it is the mandate of the church to become a community of love, a circle of Christ's followers who invest in one another because Christ invested in them, who exhibit love not based on mutuality and attractiveness of its members, but on the model of Christ, who washed the feet of everyone (including Judas). - Gary Burge (NIVAC - John, p.387)
