2016/01/16 - Personal Space by Pr. Evaldo Vicente
Title: Personal Space by Pr. Evaldo Vicente
Date: January 16, 2016 (Communion Service - Worship)
Speaker: Pr. Evaldo Vicente

Everyone has a comfort zone when it comes to personal space. Which raises the question, how close is too close? Jesus however, as we see in the bible, quite frequently crossed that personal space. He did so to heal, to restore, and to bless. 21 mins.

John 13:3-5 
3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. (ESV)

John 13:12-17 
12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. (ESV)
