Baptizing Feet Story (John 13:1-20)
Outpouring Preparation – cup, water, bowl – Let me tell you a story about how Jesus demonstrated his love for his disciples. Jesus was preparing to die on the cross. At dinner, he poured water in a bowl to wash their feet.
Astonishing Humility – Jesus, disciple, chair, bowl – Jesus knelt beside each disciple, washing their feet.
Reject Or Receive – disciple, bowl, dividing line, praising disciple, bowl, pouring water – Peter didn’t want Jesus to wash his feet. Jesus told him to receive his blessing with joy or become separated from him.
Chosen & Blessed – Jesus, glory light, pouring water – Jesus said his true disciples will be humble and love one another. All Jesus’ disciples are specially chosen by God and will receive the blessing of the Holy Spirit.
