Bible Story:

John 13:1-20

Jesus came to the earth as a servant King. He did not come to be served, but to serve others. He taught His disciples how they should serve one another by serving them through the washing of their feet. Jesus offers us the opportunity to be servants instead of slaves.


New Creation

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
