The lent season is going to be over and we are now in the Holy Week. In two days, we have Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, Great and Holy Thursday, and Thursday of Mysteries. As we all know this is the thursday before Easter when we remember the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. It also happens to be the fifth day of Holy Week.
On Maundy Thursday, we commemorate Jesus washing apostles feet. What do we learn from this?
The Lord knew his time on earth was ending. This was the last time he would be with all his disciples. What does John say was on his mind? His love for the disciples. And out of love he taught them one last lesson – humility. It should not be surprising that this was an important lesson for the disciples to learn.
Jesus said “loving your neighbor as yourself” was the second greatest command ever. It is second only to loving God with all that we are. In order to fulfill the mission of spreading the gospel, the disciples would need to learn to serve. Pride and arrogance would ruin the disciples’ relationship to God, to each other, and to the people they were trying to save. Humility and service to others is the evidence of love.
It’s an important lesson for us as well. People line up to do the tasks that are considered important, glamorous, or respected. But Jesus showed humility by doing the task that no one wanted to do. He washed the disciples’ feet — a dirty job usually performed by the lowest ranking person in the room. Was Jesus the lowest ranking person? No. He was Lord and Teacher. He knew he would soon be at the Father’s side in heaven.
Did he think it was too lowly a task for him to do? No. Are there tasks that we won’t do because they are lowly? Because they are dirty? Because they are unpleasant or hard? But aren’t those the jobs that most need to be done? And won’t God reward those who do His work? We need to be willing to do whatever is needed. Jesus was not only willing, he prepared himself to do this service. Have we made plans to serve others?
The disciples had argued in the past about which one of them would be greatest in the kingdom. Jesus had answered them by saying the greatest people were not the warriors, leaders or heroes. They are like children who are powerless, obedient and humble. We should not waste our energy worrying about how we compare to others. It is not our job to judge others for what they do or do not do.
It is our responsibility to fill the needs we see, whatever we are. James 4:17 says “Therefore to him that knows to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” Look at who all Jesus served. Even Judas, who left that table to betray the Lord, had his feet washed by Jesus. Jesus put himself in a position of servitude to his own betrayer.
Please take a look at the pictures of Jesus given above where we can see our Lord washing the feet of his disciples. Have you ever tried this? I guess no. Well, please copy and save those pictures showing Jesus washingÂ disciple’sÂ feet and let usÂ at leastÂ remember how caring and loving and humble we are called to be, as we followÂ ChristÂ – and so we are Christians.

I am creating a “Family Humility Towel” for Youth Ministries and Christians alike throughout the World to raise awareness to the ultimate supreme lesson Jesus taught in humility. I would be honored if permitted to use the image on page 23 (01). It is so beautiful and the colors are so soft and simplistic, but yet the symbolic message is one of the greatest and most powerful messages ever received from our dear Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
In His Name,
I am creating a sponsorship brochure for a Christian men’s conference. May I have permission to use image 02 for that purpose? The theme of the conference is exactly that–washing of feet (humble service that imitates that of Christ while on earth). I would most appreciate it!
