Preparing Them to Be Sent: Calling to Serve, Invited to Be Served

In John 13-17, Jesus prepares His disciples for His impending death and the mission they'll be sent on afterward. Jesus begins this time of preparation through the "enacted parable" of washing His disciples' feet, through which he calls us to a life of radical servanthood. But even more foundationally, He invites us to be served by Him and His cleansing grace.
