Maundy Thursday - What happened the night HE was betrayed?

This week is Holy week, the week leading up to Easter and the celebration of Christ's resurrection. There are many important days this week, and one of those is Maundy Thursday, it is a day to remember the last supper and Jesus washing the disciples feet, both preparing for the event for Good Friday. 

Maundy Thursday is the day that commemorates Christ's last meal with His disciples. It was on this Thursday that He and the twelve disciples observed the traditional Jewish Passover meal together. 

Maundy Thursday is when feet washing is observed by many too, because it was on this day that Jesus washed His disciples feet. He got up from the meal to serve the disciples in this way. 

"So He got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples feet, frying them with the towel he had around him."  - John 13:4-5

Maundy Thursday is recognized as a holy day of Christianity. It means Commandment Thursday comes from a latin word, Mandated which translates as Commandment. This is the first word Christ say's in John 13:34. This is the day that jesus gave his followers a new commandment --- a new mandate to LOVE

"So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples. -- John 13:34-35 

JESUS knows his disciples will fail him, and one will betray him. Yet He brings them to the table. He washes their feet and serves them a feast. This is Grace: in spite of knowing the failures to come, God moves towards us in love. He explains that their love for each other is how other people will know that they are followers of Christ. 

Many around the world celebrate Maundy Thursday not only by feet washing services, but often for other acts of Kindness that involved more physical care and outward displays of love at work. Helping people around and demonstrating the love of Christ in action on Maundy Sunday. Service done without a thought of being repaid reminds us of the Savior's sacrifice for us. 

The Outworking of Love  - "By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." - 1 John 3:16 

This is how we must be in our daily walk towards everyone in our life, "Service done without a thought of being repaid reminds us of the Savior's sacrifice for us."
