Our Feet in His Hands
“Jesus poured water into a bowl and began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel wrapped around Him.” (John 13:5)
We say, “No! Don’t wash their feet, Jesus. Tell them to wash Yours!” Do we object because we don’t want to see God washing feet? Or do we object because we don’t want to do the same?
Logic says, “Put up your fists.” Jesus says, “Fill up the basin.”
Logic says, “She doesn’t deserve it.” Jesus says, “You’re right, but you don’t, either.”
I don’t understand how God can be so kind to us, but he is. He kneels before us, takes our dirty feet in his hands, and washes them. Not from our dirt, but from our sins. And the cleansing isn’t just a gesture; it’s a necessity. We cannot cleanse our own filth. We cannot remove our own sin. Our feet must be in His hands.
Would you let him wash your feet today?
