I was a classic Mr. goody-two-shoes who was selfish, arrogant, boastful, two-faced, disrespectful, and addicted to power. But I thought I was the teacher’s pet who was almost perfect, loyal, & courageous. NOT!
In 50 days I became humble, teachable, loveable, prayerful, loyal, devoted, and Spirit-filled. I finally knew who I was. There was no longer a gap between my brain and the rest of my body. I practiced my new values constantly.
I learned a bitter lesson when Jesus washed my feet. I was dirty. I desperately needed the loving touch of Jeshua. A few hours later I needed the incredible look Jeshua gave me after I denied him three times. Without it, I would have done what Judas did. Judas needed a bath that night. I needed a foot-washing. Judas needed a re-baptism. I needed honesty.
Scripture: Matthew 16:18; John 13, entire chapter; I Peter 2:6
