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

“Foot-washer” preached by Pastor John McGhee on October 1st, 2016 at the Mount Vernon Seventh-day Adventist Church in Mount Vernon, Washington
