The New Testament is full of information about Jesus' life on earth—who He was, what He did, where He went, why He died. We're even allowed to eavesdrop on some of His conversations, to peer through time's windows and watch how He handled a variety of people and situations.
But only once in the entire New Testament do we hear from Jesus Himself about what He was like inside. Only once does He tell us in His own words about His personality, His temperament. We can read those words in Matthew 11:28-29.
In that brief passage, Jesus gives us a picture of someone who restrains his or her own power, who deliberately chooses the role of a servant. Let's keep that picture in mind as we listen to one of the most searching and convicting questions Jesus asked while on earth. For what Jesus describes in Matthew 11, He demonstrates in John 13.
