1. SOMETHING FOR YOUR HEART

LISTENING
John 13:1-5, 23
It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love. The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 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…. One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

MEDITATION

Imagine you’re present at the Last Supper. The meal is over, and Jesus leans back to recline near the table, as was the custom of that time. He’s among his disciples, people with whom he’s shared three powerful, challenging years. They’ve all been through much together. Yet Jesus knows much is still yet to come. Imagine what the scene must have looked like.
Now imagine Jesus asks you to join him. What are you feeling as he calls you to him? Are you thrilled? Nervous? Fearful? Contented? Do you feel safe or vulnerable–or perhaps a combination of both? Pay attention to your response and your emotions. Take a moment to figure them out. Then imagine Jesus invites you to lay your head on his chest. He’s inviting you to listen to the very heartbeat of God. What’s your response? As you listen, what do you hear? [Spend some time in silence.]
