Dirt on Our Hands

He poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples'feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
JOHN 13: 5

In the midst of the suffocating nightmare of losing a child, a friend of mine desired that God would be glorified.

She asked me to pray for her loving patience and thoughtful sensitivity.

She was asking me to pray for more of Jesus' dirt on her hands!

Just what is His dirt on our hands?

It's serving others when you need to be served.

Praying for others when you need to be prayed for.

Getting our hands "dirty"with more of Jesus in your life is illustrated wonderfully by Jesus'example on the night He was betrayed, just before His crucifixion.

Jesus took His disciples to an upstairs room, where the Bible says He served them!

Their "dirt" was on His hands.

When you're overwhelmed with problems and pain, get involved in the needs of others.

Drop to your knees and cry out to God:

"Give me more of Your dirt on my hands!"

From " Fixing My Eyes on Jesus " by Anne Graham Lotz

Stay Strong!
