Foot washing

 

When the Passover supper was ended, we read in John 13:4-5, “He riseth from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself- After that He poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded,” Jesus said, “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.  I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you” (John 13:14-15)

 

This first example was given by our Lord, and it is a divine institution. It is well to follow His example and wash one another’s feet; thus manifesting the spirit of humility.
