Our servant God

Just been reading John 13 in my quiet time. One of the things that struck me most was that all the way through the passage Judas' imminant betrayal of Jesus is mentioned and then it struck me... it's one thing for Jesus to demonstrate servanthood by washing his disciples' feet... but he must have also washed Judas' feet! That's something else. Such grace to wash in service the smelly feet of the man who he knew was to betray him. But that is the Christian God - he sends rain on the good and the wicked. That is our gracious God, truly worthy of worship. He continues to give when we don't deserve it one bit.
