Jesus had just washed His disciples feet and put his garments back on and reclined at table again, he said to them, “Do you realize what I have done for you? You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” Jn_13:1-15
The PERFECT model!
If we want to get to know Jesus, beloved, all we need to do is follow in his footsteps. We first learn all about those footsteps, like praying for others, washing their feet, physically or spiritually healing our neighbor and feeding those who are hungry. They weren’t big things, just little, almost unnoticeable things. But for those to whom they are done, they may never be forgotten. That’s being Jesus to others, just as He modeled for us!
