..great blessings will be yours if you do them. ” This is the Word of Jesus to his disciples when he washed their feet.
Combining action with knowledge is a great prospective of a Christian life. It is not easy, put our words in an action. Christ washed his disciples feet to give us an example, how should we do it? He is teaching us the value of spiritual washing , if you haven’t read John 13 : 1 to 17 , I suggest go and read it.
In my saturday bible read and focus. Verse 17 of John 13 captured my attention. That, in a simple saying : life is happy if you love and serve others. The most important thing we need to know that we are happy inside, if our soul becomes Joy. Which is not on surface, but inside of us. Jesus is saying if you want to have this Joy , do what I taught you. ” washing others’ feet ”
As commentary says : ” cleansing of the soul from the pollution of sin ” how ? By doing these things Jesus said. By putting our knowledge in practice. As James brother of Jesus , gave us a better phrase: ” Faith without works is dead “
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” – W.T Purkiser
