Reenacting Maundy Thursday
As His disciples we are to imitated this kind of servanthood and this kind of love to one another as a testimony of Christ's work to redeem and transform us. We are knit together as family with other disciples. Neither Maundy Thursday or Easter Sunday are instructed to be celebrated in Scripture as special days. We are to reenact the servanthood and love of Christ and rejoice in the power of His resurrection every day-- especially every Lord's Day when we gather together as local covenantal congregations. However, it never hurts to give special attention to these things on special days. So consider today how you might serve and share the love of Christ with fellow disciples as a witness to those who need to hear and see the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus adds another critical statement in John 13:35 that gives motivation for verse 34, "Be this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
