“Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” John 13: 5 (ESV)
As Jesus is taking this journey of His last days of earthly ministry. He takes time to set up for them The Lord’s supper. A remembrance of who He was and for them to share that meal and memory forever.
Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. Matthew 26:14-15 (ESV)
It is not a good feeling when we are betrayed by someone we trusted. When we have helped someone and been there for them through thick and thin and to have them turn around and betray us is the ultimate in hurt. Jesus has been with His disciples teaching them and showing them miracles and blessings.
“And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.” Matthew 21:21 (ESV)
As we have spent this time in fasting and praying it should not have just been a time of giving up certain foods, but it should have been a spiritual journey that brought us closer to The Lord. This should have been a time of getting to know The Lord better than you have before, and a time of building our faith.
