Currently it is 3:42am and I am writing this at church. Have been here all night for a youth lock-in. I am so exhausted at the moment I can’t think straight, but it’s okay. I have been overwhelmed by the spirit of God in amazing ways tonight.
We had a time of remembering what Jesus did for His disciples before taking the cross when He washed their feet. We all washed each other’s feet. I have done this many times before but tonight it was so powerful. Seeing these kids bow down on their knees before each other and pouring out their love.
I believe that in those moment’s God was really proud and happy with these kids. Washing someone’s feet is a very difficult thing to do, but these kids, filled with spirit were willing and ready to serve each other. When Jesus washed His disciples feet He told them to do so for others. Tonight our kids honored that commandment.
It’s such a humbling experience to receive service and love on a level like that. That is exactly what Christ-like love is all about. Laying down ourselves for someone else.
I saw God today.
