Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon   Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.”

John 13:3-7

Because we walk through a foul and filthy world, we are irreparably polluted, infected, and tainted. We need God to wash us clean, from the soles of our feet to the top of our heads, from the core of our hearts to the tip of our tongues. Jesus is King, but He is not beyond washing our feet. He is not afraid to get down and dirty if it means his disciples are to be welcome to and are to be ready for His Kingdom.

What do you want Him to wash you of and with right now?
