Daily Devotional for September 21, 2005

September 21

BIBLE MEDITATION: ?Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.? 1 Peter 5:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: To be ?clothed? in 1 Peter 5:5 means to tie a knot or put on a servant?s apron. Basically, this verse tells us to tie on the apron of a slave and be humble. Why do you think Peter used that figure of speech? I think it was because Jesus laid aside His garments, girded Himself with a towel, and washed their feet. But ?Peter saith unto Him, ?Thou shalt never wash my feet.? Jesus answered him, ?If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me,? ? (John 13:8). The act was symbolic of the fact that even though we are saved, we walk in a dirty world and we need to come to Jesus daily to cleanse us from our sins, restore and refresh us. Also, you can?t look down on somebody when you?re washing their feet.

ACTION POINT: Do you have a family? Why not perform a ?foot-washing? ceremony in your house this week to show your family how serious you are about being clothed with humility before God.
