Simply Jesus - Irrational Love

John 13 - Having loved his dear companions, he continued to love them right to the end.

This story for me takes the biscuit. How can someone know that in a few minutes he is going to be betrayed by one of his closest companions and still serve him.

Judas had been with Jesus through so many things. He had seen many miracles, he had heard some great teaching yet he was about to blow it, and Jesus knew it. If it had been me I would have outed him in front of everyone.

After all what use is a gift of knowledge (that's what Jesus had) when you don't use it. Jesus served him as he did everything else by taking the position of a servant and washing his friends dusty feet.

So often we fight for our rights Jesus simply loved and served. An incredible example.
