John 13:16-20

Jesus reiterates the absolute necessity of his disciples understanding his relationship with the Father and how it speaks to their relationship with one another. Being a disciple does not lead to greatness in the eyes of the world. Being a disciple, with the heart of a servant, leads to life everlasting with the Father. Jesus hints at Judas’ imminent betrayal, fulfilling Scripture. The hour has come.

I find great comfort in having the lens of the resurrection through which to read and reflect on the events that you willingly entered into. You did it for me. Lead and guide me in serving you and my sisters and brothers this day and all the days to come.
