I sometimes would like to go farther than our Friday reading in our blog, but first of all I want to back up to the beginning of this chapter. Jesus now remembers He is known by Paul in 2 Corinthians 2:8 as the Lord of glory.  Paul in his early life was not willing to call Him that.
​Now in this chapter we find Jesus taking a servant position and he Is telling His Apostles to be that way too. Jesus call Himself their example that they should do likewise.  We must be careful not to a ct like we are greater than our Lord.  In our pride it would be easier than we think to do. 
Jesus then says, "If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them." We have to read the whole package and then get to work. 
Then Jesus mentions that one would eat bread with Him would turn his heel against Him, "This is a prophetic statement of Psalm 41:9.  I often wondered when Judas knew he would do that.  It also focuses in Acts 1:25 that he went to his own place, meaning he was never saved.  I hope everyone who reads this is saved by accepting the work Jesus did when He died for us on the cross.
