John 13:1 NIV
It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
It’s easy to serve when the going is easy. When life gets busy or stressful, however, it is so easy to focus on coping or your own challenges. This makes what is about to happen in this chapter – Jesus is about to be arrested and killed and yet his concern is still for his disciples.
Thank you Lord for your undeserved attention and concern. Spirit, help me display such compassion in my life.
