God moved in a unique way today. During our community outreach, God led us to open a booth to wash feet. As we kneeled to wash, we would share from John 13, how Jesus washed the feet of His disciples. Imagine the Creator of the world bending down to wash the feet of His creation.
Jesus set the example that we are to serve one another. We shared with each person that at the foot of the cross, we all stand equally separated from God no matter where we come from or what sin we have committed.
A few days ago, we Grill walked a neighborhood. ( where we canvas a neighborhood by giving out burgers, bibles, and prayer). As one of our teams was headed to the last house of the evening, they noticed a man standing by himself. They walked up to him and engaged him in gospel conversation. They found out his name was Kirby and that he was homeless, living out of a van with his uncle. As Kirby shared his story, he captured the hearts of our students who were listening. They gave him more burgers, prayed with him, and left with heavy hearts.
Here we are, two days later. The first people to walk past the foot washing station, Kirby and his uncle Galan. A little hesitant, but willing they allowed us to wash their feet. Overgrown yellow nails, calloused feet, and deep layers of dirt filled the troth as we gently washed their feet and shared the story of Jesus. These men were deeply impacted that we were willing to bend low, clean their feet, and pray for them in the name of Jesus.
The water may have been filled with dirt after they got up, but their hearts were full and smiles were brighter because of the love of Jesus.
Would you pray for Kirby and Galan? Pray that what they experienced tonight will put a longing for more of Jesus.
