1. The Loving Servant — John 13:1-11

He Lived in Peace (13:3)

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus; Who, being in the very very nature of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in the human likeness. And being formed in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross! (Paul--Philippians 2:5-8)
2. The Loving Example — John 13:12-20
He Taught with Clarity (13:12)
He Spoke in Truth (13:13-17)
He Comforted with Prophecy (13:18)
He Warned with Authority (13:19-20)
