got up from supper, and laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He girded Himself. - John 13:4 NASB
I love this snippet from when Jesus washed the disciples feet.
Reminds me of
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. - Philippians 2:5-8 NASB
He took off - He put on.
And it reminds me of
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, - Colossians 3:9-10 NKJV
We must take off – we must put on.
Put on the new man!
What new man?
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. - Galatians 3:27 NKJV
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts. - Romans 13:14 NKJV
Lord Jesus, help me put off the old man and his lusts today, and help me to put on Christ, and walk in the new life you have resurrected me to. Let my spirit cry “Yes Lord” today.
