Jesus Was an Example of Service

John 13:16-20


Jesus Christ always did His Father’s will.

He even died on a cross for others.

Jesus said that if we imitate Him,

No one can take away our happiness.


If we give up our pride and ambition,

Peace and joy will come to our fruition.

Jesus said that Judas would betray Him.

Apostles saw His prediction come true.


They knew Jesus had divine foreknowledge.

Old Testament scriptures found fulfilment.

Jesus Christ is the One who is God’s Son.

Being with God in Heaven He has won.


My mother and my wife make many meals.

They deserve to eat in a restaurant.

Patrick McCaskey
