focus and freedom

Et post buccellam introivit in eum satanas    Et post buccellam introivit in eum satanas is the title of this work by Salvador Dali. This is Dali's interpretation of Judas leaving the last supper to betray Jesus. The Dali museum is in St. Petersburg, Florida.

In my listening/reading today in John something stirred in me in the story of Jesus washing the disciples feet. So much was swirling around Jesus during this time including one of his best friends preparing to betray him. In the context of this John writes in chapter 13, “3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him."

Jesus had such great focus. It freed him to do anything. I want that focus and that freedom to honor and glorify you Lord.
