Hymn 10, “Jesus Now and Jesus Ever”


 

I Kings 22:17, “And he said, 'I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd,' and the Lord said, 'These have no master; let them return every man to his house in peace.'”

 

God looks down upon the world today in kindness and compassion and sees His people scattered throughout the lands.  Our Master, Jesus offers us peace, a peace like nothing else in this world.  He is a person of authority and He is in control.

 

John 8:28, “Then said Jesus unto them, 'When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am He, and I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father hath taught Me, I speak these things,'” and verse 13, “The Pharisees therefore said unto Him, 'Thou bearest record of Thyself; Thy record is not true.'”

 

When Jesus washed the disciples’ feet, He taught them by example. He saw something in their hearts that made Him do it and He girded Himself with a servant’s cloth and showed them how to wash each other’s feet and how to become a servant.  They saw love in His service and it taught them to be free of all selfish desires.  When we see humility in another’s life, it cleanses our hearts and frees us from our own wants and desires.  I don’t know what is in your heart but I know what is in mine, and it is filled with many selfish desires.  May we be cleansed today and be filled with kindness for each other.
