The Holy Spirit exhausted the alphabet in describing Jesus.
He was the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is the Christ and the Creator, the Daystar of David’s seed. He’s the Everlasting God, Friend of friends, and God of grace. He’s the Helper to the helpless and the Incarnate One, the Just and the Justifier, the King of kings and Lord of lords. He’s the Man and the Messiah, the Name above every name; the Omnipotent One and the Overcomer of the dead; the Prince of Peace, the Quickener of the dead; the Resurrection and the Life, and Salt and the Savior; the Truth and the Testator, the Unspeakable gift of God. He’s the Very God of very gods, the Way, the Word, and the Wonderful One. He’s the Xpressed image of God, Yesterday’s victory, and Zion’s hope for tomorrow.
“And every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Philippians 2:10).
But in John 13, Jesus did a funny thing. He traded his titles for towels. “He poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him” (John 13:5).
That should be a challenge to us all. We want titles, when we should be asking for a towel.
Recovery Step: Exchange your ambitions for towels. Wash someone’s feet today.
