Day 1 - All Things In Jesus' Hands

1Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. (John 13:1-5 ESV)

John 13:1-5 paints a powerful picture of Jesus' humility and love, washing his disciples' feet despite knowing his imminent betrayal. This act also reveals a profound truth: the Father entrusts everything to Jesus. What does this mean for us?


The reason the father gives all things into the hands of Jesus is because it is through Jesus all things have its being. Jesus, the divine Son of God, is the creator and sustainer of all things. Trusting him is trusting our very foundation. He's not a distant clockmaker, but God who is intimately involved in our lives because of his love for us.


We often cling to anxieties and possessions, fearing scarcity or loss. Lent offers a chance to examine what we hold tightly, things like finances, relationships, or even our self-image. Can we release these burdens and trust Jesus' provision and purpose?


Pray we can live today trusting Jesus’ sufficiency for all things in our lives.
