In my bible reading, I was in John's Gospel this past week, and came across these verses in John 13:
John 13:12-15 NIV
 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them.  "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.  Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.  I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
Now, as we know, the context of this is that Jesus washes his disciples feet...which would've been quite the mucky job in those days compared to modern day western civilization where people regularly wear shoes and socks. Not only would it have been a mucky job, but one that a teacher wouldn't have done for his students...and Jesus did it joyfully. But, what struck me in my reading came from verses 13 and 14 where Jesus says:  "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.  Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.
It challenged me because I realized that I have no problem acknowledging Jesus as my Teacher, nor do I have a problem acknowledging Him as my Lord. But, would I allow Jesus to wash my feet? Would I allow the King of glory to take a position of serving me, not because of anything that I have done, but solely because he loves me. Would I allow Jesus to serve and minister to me?
Jesus came as the 'suffering servant' not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28).
I wonder what your theology is of Jesus? If you're anything like me, you have no problem calling him 'Teacher' and 'Lord'. But, would you allow Him to serve you? The point of Jesus doing so is, two-fold, of course. Firstly, Jesus does so because He loves you so. There's no ulterior motive. He simply loves you. And secondly, Jesus does so, so that you too, can do unto others as He's done for you.
My encouragement to you this afternoon would be to take time to allow Jesus to minister to you. Life has a way of attaching rubbish to our lives, a lot like mud on dirty feet that can get crusty and all together mucky...And the wonderful news is, is that Jesus wants to remove those blemishes from our lives. But, the key is, in order for Jesus to minister to you, you have to allow him to do so.
Jesus doesn't need superheroes. Praise the Lord! Because my striving for perfection is futile! Jesus is the ultimate superhero! He just needs people who call Him 'Teacher' and 'Lord' and, allow Him to serve them, by ministering to them.
