Jesus’ intent was to wash Peter’s feet. At first Peter refused to be part of the cleansing. Jesus told him that it was necessary. Then Peter’s reaction was “wash my hands and feet too”. Jesus said that wasn’t needful. He just needed to wash his feet.

How often are we hesitant to go along with the plan Jesus has for us? After we finally get on board we sometimes try to take the plan and add to it for whatever reason: excitement from surrendering, guilt from not surrendering earlier or because we think our plan is better.

Jesus’ plan, His callings are exactly what is needed to be done. He doesn’t call us into work that will be inadequate for us or the people it is to reach. His ways are perfect. We need to be quick to follow them just as He has laid out.
