Through Jesus, She Is: Purified
“Peter persisted, ‘You’re not going to wash my feet—ever!’ Jesus said, ‘If I don’t wash you, you can’t be part of what I’m doing.’”
—John 13:8 (MSG)
For Simon Peter, it was strange to him that Jesus, the Messiah, would want to touch his dirty feet and clean them. Culturally, it made no sense. Why would someone so important want to touch something so dirty?
When you read John 13:1-17, you’ll find that Jesus’s actions had nothing to do with hygiene at all, but holiness. Even though Jesus Himself had no part in sinning Himself, this powerful moment in scripture is an example of how deeply Jesus loves us despite our filth. He isn’t surprised by what we’ve done wrong. He is far more focused on making us right and making us pure.
Often times in Christian culture, the word “purity” is usually just associated with encourage young people to not have sex before marriage. Yes, it is important to know that your body belongs to God and sex is apart of a bond between a man and woman who have made a vow before God through marriage, but as believers, we have to know that being pure before God isn’t just limited to not having sex. If we really want to be pure before God, we must do so in every area of our lives. We must come clean and admit that we need a Savior no matter what we have or haven’t done. Whether you’re a virgin or not, whether you’ve dated eight guys in the past three or you’ve never even been on a date at all, let Jesus be the One who gives you gives you a pure heart. Walk in that purity knowing that is Him that has made you clean.
John 13:1-17, Ezekiel 36:25, 1 Corinthians 6:11
When you think of Jesus washing your feet, what moments in your life do you think of? Journal your thoughts.
I'm really disappointed in the post about Jesus "washing away a man's homosexuality" and I feel that I can not follow this blog anymore as it's not pointing me toward Christ but this post pushes hate.
It’s amazing that we have the freedom of speech, and of expression. Your freedom has let me know how you feel about this post and of this blog. You have every right to feel as you desire.
I too as you do, have the freedom of speech and of expression. With this freedom, I have sought, and I continually seek to have this blog and all of its post to glorify God and Him alone. As the description of this page reads,
“This page is deeply rooted in the Bible All for the glory of God, and Him alone Bounded in raw truth Never meant to appease men But inspire men to the likings of Christ”
This post is about what this man, Sinsibal says. He himself declares that Jesus washed him clean. There is to be joy when Jesus washes someone clean! I sense that your concern is not of what this man has testified but the topic of homosexuality. Homosexuality is a rampant topic nowadays, sensitive too. I have no hate [
intense or passionate dislike; according to dictionary.com] towards those who say they are gay, lesbian, transgender, or in between. My stance on homosexuality is: it is a sin. Just like lying, stealing, and adultery, homosexuality is a sin (1 Cor. 6:9).
Like all sins Jesus died for, we need to be cleansed from them that we may inherit the kingdom of God. This is what the Word says. This is what I stand by. This stance is not popular in today’s times, but this blog’s concern and its post is to glorify God despite of the many cost. To glorify God, is to remain in truth (John 4:24), the truth is to point all towards the cross. This post did so, and I stand by it.
If you have any questions or comments I’m right here to discuss
i have a new theory about simon and the undead prophet
what if we’ve been looking at this the wrong way?
we’re assuming simon represents judas. it was an easy answer to come to, what if it was a decoy?
lets talk about saint peter
“The New Testament indicates that Peter was the son of John (or Jonah or Jona) and was from the village of Bethsaida in the province of Galilee or Gaulanitis.”
“Peter was one of twelve apostles chosen by Jesus from his first disciples.”
“According to the gospels, Peter confessed Jesus as the Messiah, was part of Jesus’ inner circle, thrice denied Jesus, and preached on the day of Pentecost.”
“Peter’s original name was "Shimon” or “Simeon” (“Simon” in modern English).“
"The Synoptic Gospels all recount how Peter’s mother-in-law was healed by Jesus at their home in Capernaum which, coupled with 1 Cor. 9:5, clearly depict Peter as a married man” (referring to simon and amy being ‘engaged’?)
“At the beginning of the Last Supper, Jesus washed his disciples’ feet. Peter initially refused to let Jesus wash his feet, but when Jesus responded: "If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me”, Peter replied: “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head”.“ (kieren taking off simon’s cover up?)
"In a dialogue between Jesus and his disciples (Matthew 16:13-19), Jesus asks, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” The disciples give various answers. When he asks, “Who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answers, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
“In a reminiscent scene in John’s epilogue, Peter affirms three times that he loves Jesus.”
we’ve all been assuming simon represents judas, but there are many things that could suggest he represents peter. although there are a lot of gaps (such as the thrice denial, although that may become clearer) it is plausible.
now, onto the undead prophet.
lets go back to “The New Testament indicates that Peter was the son of John”
the undead prophet refers to simon in episode 2x05 as “my son”. (as seen from the promo)
who in the show is called john?
john weston, one of the doctors who invented neurotriptyline.
emmett j scanlan said that he thinks simon met the undead prophet while in the treatment centre, and that’s where he learned from him and became a disciple.
people were already thinking one of the doctors could be the undead prophet.
I hate how in Death Note the episode where the thing with L happens and when L is drying/massaging Light’s feet, all the hardcore yaoi fans freak out and make it really perverted and I’m just here like. No. It’s a biblical reference. It refers to when Jesus washed Judas’ feet. Before Judas betrayed Jesus. I DIDN’T SPEND 8 YEARS IN A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FOR THIS SHIT.
