“When the Lord of the world comes and undertakes the slave’s task of foot-washing…
which is an illustration of the way He washes our feet all through our lives…
We have a totally different picture.
God does not want to trample on us, but kneels down before us so as to exult us.
The mystery of the greatness of God is seen precisely in the fact that He can be so small…
Only when power is changed from the inside, and we accept Jesus and his way of life, whose self is there in there in the action of the foot-washing,
Only then can the world be healed and the people be able to live at peace with one another.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
“If I therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” John 13:14-15
My sister-in-law and I had just discussed the humbling aspect of this…The Lord is awesome! ~mkg
Don’t you love how everything is so connected?! Yes, He certainly is awesome! God Bless you Marilyn!
Amen! God bless you!
So wonderful an act is Jesus’ washing of His disciples’ feet! He humbled Himself for us, that we might be ONE!
Amen…that we may be ONE! God BLess you Granbee!
I touched on this same example in a recent blog post because the depth of the truth profoundly reached my heart as I considered what Christ did and the pattern I should be following. Thank you for sharing!
thanks Cristal…I’m heading over to your place to read your thoughts as well. God Bless you!
