No More Preconceptions!

by Hazel Straub

Do you ever limit God in your life? Many times we close ourselves to going to deeper in relationship to God because we base our opinion on our limited experience and how we interpret the Word of God.

Peter was one of the original disciples. He had many wonderful experiences with Jesus but was still limited by how he saw things. Jesus knew he was going to give up his life and got a basin of water and a towel to wash and dry his disciples’s feet. When Jesus came to Peter, he refused to have his feet washed because Jesus was his Lord. Then Jesus told Peter he would not be able to share life with him, unless he let him wash his feet. Peter then wanted to have his head and hands washed and allowed Jesus to wash his feet. He left pride behind and humbled himself. The same evening, Peter did not want Jesus to die and said he would take Jesus’ place. Jesus told Peter he would deny him three times before the rooster crowed. Peter went on his own strength and interpretation and denied Jesus three times. He later saw the truth of what Jesus said and repented.

God tells us to drop our preconceptions, our own ideas, and to listen to him. Holy Spirit lives inside of believers in Jesus and will lead us into all truth, as we yield to him. Let God give the truth to us no matter what it does to your preconceptions. Holy Spirit, show me the truth of the Word of God!

Now Jesus was fully aware that the Father had placed all things under his control, for he had come from God and was about to go back to be with him. So he got up from the meal and took off his outer robe, and took a towel and wrapped it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ dirty feet and dry them with his towel. But when Jesus got to Simon Peter, he objected and said, “I can’t let you wash my dirty feet—you’re my Lord!” Jesus replied, “You don’t understand yet the meaning of what I’m doing, but soon it will be clear to you.” Peter looked at Jesus and said, “You’ll never wash my dirty feet—never!”

“But Peter, if you don’t allow me to wash your feet,” Jesus responded, “then you will not be able to share life with me.” So Peter said, “Lord, in that case, don’t just wash my feet, wash my hands and my head too!” Jesus said to him, “You are already clean. You’ve been washed completely and you just need your feet to be cleansed—but that can’t be said of all of you.” For Jesus knew which one was about to betray him, and that’s why he told them that not all of them were clean. (John 13:3-10 TPT)

  6. Truth is a rare commodity these days, yet, it is in abundance if we look to where it is found-Jesus Christ.
