Before I Go...

Passage:John 13:1-35

Maundy Thursday - It is normal to leave behind a to do list or final instructions before you leave on a trip. When Jesus meets with his disciples for the last time (the Last Supper) he leaves them three things: a New Command, A New Sacrament, and a New Ritual (foot washing). The significance of each of these is profound, but we must realize that they wouldn't mean a thing if, after having just given them, that Jesus didn't then walk out the door and suffer and die.
