Having A Part with the Lord

According to the Lord's command, the church today washes the feet of the baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The person administering the sacrament follows the example left by Jesus and washes each new believer's feet and dries them with a towel.

Such observance is not merely symbolic. It is a command from the Lord. Its effect is to "have a part" with our Lord Jesus (see John 13:8).

To have a part with Jesus is to have a part in his life. God's saving grace does not end at baptism. This grace is a life-long gift.

In order to participate in this lasting relationship, we need to accept the footwashing by our Lord. Behind this act of washing lies the full extent of Christ's unfailing love.
