Living Clean In A Dirty World #3 of 3

June 13, 2007
The world is no friend to the Christian who wants to live a clean life. No matter what we do, some dirt clings to our feet. Believers in the race of life share a daily need to be cleansed by Christ, Who desires fellowship with us...fellowship that is broken when we sin. Jesus modeled His teaching by taking a basin and a towel to wash His disciples' feet.

A basin and a towel are the real symbols of the Christian faith. We wash each other's feet, and then run life's race. When Jesus washed Peter's feet, the conflict within Peter was palpable. Having his Master kneel before him brought forth a visceral reaction. But servant leadership was on display, and we, like Peter, must heed this stark lesson in how to serve.

When runners at a track meet hear the pistol shot, they are off, in a cloud of dust. And that dust gets into everything. Just as athletes need to clean their shoes, believers in life's race know that they need daily cleansing to please Jesus, the Author and Finisher of their faith. That is a lesson Peter learned long ago as his Master approached him with a towel.

It has been said that there are only two certainties: death and taxes. Believers know there are more than just these two. We all have financial obligations, and we will all face the end of this life. But Jesus will be there to meet all of our needs, as we have learned in Matthew chapter 17, where Peter learned a lifelong lesson from a coin in a fish's mouth. Today: how we should respond to the lesson he learned.

Object lessons are powerful lessons. Jesus used them many times to communicate vital truth to His disciples. In Matthew chapter 17, Peter learned a lifelong lesson from a coin in a fish's mouth: a lesson on Who really provides for our needs. As we learn that lesson with him, we too will realize how close Christ wants to be to each of His people.

Many people think Christianity may be great for the life to come, but what about the here and now and the bills I have to pay? Jesus knows full well the race of life we all run. He knows our weakness, and He knows what we need. He is aware of the demands each day brings, and so today, we will join Peter in learning a lesson from coin in a fish's mouth.

No one likes the idea of suffering, especially those accustomed to a comfortable lifestyle. And so we avoid the cross. But just as Jesus had to bear His cross on the way to Calvary, He says to each believer, "Take up your cross, and follow Me." Had Peter actually dissuaded Jesus from that awful fate, the salvation of mankind would never have been possible.

Sometimes our best intentions can lead us astray. Peter could not imagine His Master nailed to a cross, and told Him so. But Matthew chapter 16 records a stern rebuke from Jesus to Peter: "Get thee behind me, Satan!" Jesus knew that the cross was His destiny, and would not allow anything to stand between Him and the death God had planned from eternity.
