Saving Soles

Some of you have been waiting for this opportunity for months, so today we bring you for the first time ever in the blogosphere, special guest blogger – What About.

Freakin weirdos…what are these people doing? Surely Jesus didn’t really mean for us to do this.

Not convinced this is something we should be doing? Don’t take my word for it.

1 John 3:17

Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God’s love? It disappears. And you made it disappear.

Mark 9:35

He sat down and summoned the Twelve. “So you want first place? Then take the last place. Be the servant of all.”

Mark 10:41-45

“Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave. That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not to be served—and then to give away his life in exchange for many who are held hostage.”

You Floating Axhead boys like to keep a running list of “You Might Be a Pharisee if….”  Well, I have one to add.

If you think you are too good to do something Jesus did, you might be a Pharisee.

  1. Amen…

    Now go and do likewise…

    Don’t forget to tell them the things that Jesus commanded, and taught…

    You are an ambassador… ambassador’s don’t think of their own purposes but they represent the one whom they serve…

    Don’t forget that Jesus represents the truth, and we are to represent Him, His ways, and His teachings to the world…

    Break bread with Him, for Him, and do these things in remembrance of Him… and look deeper…

  2. What a wonderful way to show Christian love to someone!

    I’ve always thought washing each other’s feet in church was just silly, because in Jesus day there was a reason for it, not so much now. But this…this is a way to do just what He did, and for the same reason.

  3. This is inspiring! We are going to add this to our ministry. I am sad we hadn’t thought of it before!!
    This really blessed my sole!!
