This one is from a few years back. It’s just as relevant today as it was then. And as it was 2,000 years ago.

The last day of Jesus’ life on earth…what did he do? Why did he do it?

I know it’s not Maundy Thursday, yet.  But I wanted folks to hear this sermon on Jesus’ last day of life on earth before he was crucified. What he choose to do with his disciples. To hear and understand the “new commandment” that he gave to them, and that He still gives to us.

And then look at ourselves and take stock of how well we are following that new commandment. And to have renewed understanding of why there even had to be a Holy Week…and a cross.

Try and listen at a time when you won’t be interrupted, and try to listen to the entire message. Thanks.

What would the world look like?

Sibiu Cathedral (Jesus washes Peter's feet) by Fergal Claddagh

What would it look like if we actually lived the way Jesus commands us to?

Here’s Pastor Mark’s Maundy Thursday sermon for 2011.

( I messed up the begining so there’s a silence for about 20 seconds or so at the start of it)

Maundy Thursday

( from Lutheran Church of the Master’s monthly publication, ‘The Mast’)

Traditionally in the Christian Church, this day is known as Maundy SEU 18 by { angie }Thursday. The term ‘Maundy’ comes from the Latin word mandatum (from which we get our English word mandate), a verb that means “to give”, “to entrust”, or “to order”.  The term is usually translated to “commandment”, from John’s account of that Thursday night.  According to the Fourth Gospel, as Jesus’ and the Disciples were eating their final meal together before Jesus’ arrest, he washed the disciple’s feet to illustrate humility and the spirit of servanthood.  After they had finished the meal, as they walked into the night toward Gethsemane, Jesus taught his disciples a “new” commandment, that was not really new  (John 13:34-35) :

 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, you also ought to love another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

This post is a replay of last year’s Maundy Thursday posting.

How have you done in the area of ‘loving one another’ since last Maundy Thursday?

Have you humbled yourself and taken on the qualities of the lowest slave in the household, to serve others in love at the expense of your own position in life?

I haven’t.   At least not very often and not for very long and not probably not for the right reasons.

In your opinion, are the word’s that Jesus spoke on that Thursday night, concerning loving one another, words of law, or are they words of gospel?
