The Sacrament of Footwashing

Like baptism, footwashing is a sacrament: a divine act which the Lord commanded the believers to receive and imitate.

Jesus said, "He who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but he is clean all over" (John ). With this analogy, the Lord taught that a believer needs to accept footwashing after he has been baptized.

When we receive the sacrament, a brother or sister in Christ performs the footwashing, but in spirit, it is our Lord who washes our feet. It is the Lord's reminder to us of his eternal love and a call to live forever under his love.
