Focusing the Gospel

Key words and phrases: loved his own in the world, Unless I wash you ... no inheritance with me, model to follow, you should also do

To the point: Peter desires to maintain the Master-disciple relationship: “Master, are you going to wash my feet?” Because Jesus “loved his own in the world,” he knew the more desirable relationship to preserve is that of serving others in such a way that they grow into the fullness of life. The model Jesus gives us is more even than serving others—it is choosing life. It is seeking the inheritance only Jesus can give.
