Lessons from the Upper Room (John 13) - 4/13/22
Jesus is in the midst of “Holy Week”
He is in the upper room with the disciples
Jesus is teaching and modeling the true life of a servant.
4 Words to consider as we reflect upon the upper room
Serve – vv. 1-20
follow my example
Master, yet washed their feet
We serve one another.
Trust – vv. 21-30
Troubled in His spirit.
In the midst of betrayal
Trusting in the will and plan of God. Not doubting God’s perfect plan. (Jesus trust)
Our doing must be for the right reasons…Judas has everyone fooled….was he really trusting God and who Christ was or who he thought Christ needed to be?
Love – vv. 31-35
Glorified at the cross
A new commandment…Love
1 John 4:20
1 Peter 4:8
1 John 3:18
Forgive – vv. 36-38
Jesus knew He was going to the Cross
He knew Peter would deny Him
He knew what Peter would become.
Receive and Go
1 Peter 3:9
