“Now that I, yourLord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know theses things, you will be blessed if you do them.
Jesus’ last act on earth before His time of suffering began was to show His disciples that they must be servants. The Author of Life, the Great Lord of Glory, got on His hands and knees and washed the feet of those He had created. His example is clear: as He served others, so must we serve also.
