Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 August 6

Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.  (John 13:8-9)

Today’s Morsel:  When we look at our body, the hands and the head seem to get us into more trouble than the other parts.  The head is the operation center of our very being.  If our head isn't cleansed, our mind and our thoughts will not be cleansed either.  Thus, causing us to think the wrong way and often times doing the wrong things.  Solomon said that as a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7).   As I heard one preacher say, “You will live out your concepts."  What we think is what we often times become and do.  So many people seem to have troubled minds today.  And most of it is caused by uncleanliness.  Many have allowed too much filth of the world to invade the operation center within the head.  Thus, they are unable to think right, reason right, or do what is right.  Peter knew that it just wasn't his feet that needed to be washed.  He knew that his feet were the least thing that he needed to be concerned with.  He knew that his head and hands would need to be washed in order for him to be complete and be able to maintain a right relationship with Christ.  And if Jesus didn’t wash those parts there was no way he could have a right relationship with Him.  The same holds true for us.  Have you asked Jesus to wash your hands and head?

Sing: What can wash away my sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.  O’ precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow, no other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Thought For Today: Keep the clutter out of the operation center of the mind and you’ll remain complete.

  1. Just read this post tonight, Sunday, August 7 after Sunday night church. Pastor just preached tonight about are lives being to cluttered and that we must make room for church. If we'll make church the center focal point of our life, everything else will turn out aright.
