Tonight we come together for what is often called Maundy Thursday. The word maundy originates from the Latin phrase novum mandatum, which translates to new mandate or new commandment. The new commandment, found in John 13:34-35, given to the disciples, as well as us, is to “love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Remembering that Christ laid aside His power and majesty to come serve us, and love us by dying for us.
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Philippians 2:3-8 NASB
Love each other, and regard others as more important than yourself.
