“I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.” John 13:15 NLT
Jesus spoke these words to His disciples immediately after He washed their feet. “After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.” John 13:12-15 NLT
We are called to follow the example of Christ. It was an act of humility and caring service to others. Perhaps there is someone in your life that God is asking you to serve. It is through following the examples of Christ's life that we actually set examples for others to follow.
We too should be able say what Paul said; “Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9 NLT
When we follow the right example we leave the right example for others to follow.
