"You Will Be Blessed..."
Our Savior wants you to accept his
unceasing love and have a part in him. He offers to wash your feet. When Peter
heard the Lord's words, "if I do not wash you, you have no part in
me," he wasted no time in accepting the washing.
Having a part with Christ means
everything; it means your share in his promises; it means your share in his
kingdom. Commit your life of faith to the loving care of the Master and let him
wash your feet.
And after you have done so, put
into practice the teachings of footwashing by humbly loving, serving, and
forgiving others. To those who obey and follow the example left by our Lord,
this is his promise, "Now that you know these things, you will be blessed
if you do them" (John 13:17).
