The “elders” of the Natsarim have much to learn from Yahusha’s demonstration. We must go far beyond kindness, and love one
another deeply and sincerely. Love never fails. Yahusha is looking for the fruit, and when we bear good fruit, we are pleasing to Him.

FOOT WASHING
 
Yahusha instructed us to wash one another’s feet. I believe that meanseveryone, but most
especially 
those in leadership. The ideal is to keep ourperspective of being servants of one another, and that the one who may
think 
ofhimself as “greatest” is to be the servant of all. What was going on at the timeYahusha took the water basin to their feet set the stage for what He wanted toteach them, and us. He had told them He was going away. They immediatelybegan to take stock of who would take His place, and become the one in charge.After reading Yahuchanon’s account, look at the
context 
provided by Luke veryclosely (below).Yahusha said He was giving them
an example 
, and it was a very powerful way ofshowing us we are all to serve one another.Joh 13:3-17:“Yahusha, knowing that the Father had given all into His hands,and that He had come from Elohim
and was going to Elohim
, rose fromsupper and laid aside His garments, and having taken a towel, He girdedHimself. After that He put water into a basin and began to wash the feet of thetaught ones, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Andso He came to Shimon Kepha, and he said to Him, ‘Master, do You wash myfeet?’Yahusha answered and said to him,
‘You do not know what I am doing now,but you shall know after this.’
 Kepha said to Him, ‘By no means shall You wash my feet, ever!’ Yahushaanswered him, ‘If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.’Shimon Kepha said to Him, ‘Master, not my feet only, but also my hands and myhead!’ Yahusha said to him, ‘He who has had a bath does not need to wash,except his feet, but is clean altogether. And you are clean, but not all of you.’For He knew who would deliver Him up, so He said, ‘You are not all clean.’So when He had washed their feet and taken His garments, and sat down again,He said to them, ‘Do you know what I have done to you?
 
You call me Teacher and Master, and you say well, for I am. Then if I, Master andTeacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.
For I gave you an example 
, that you should do as I have done to you.Truly, truly, I say to you,
a servant is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than he who sent him 
.If you know these
teachings 
, blessed are you if you do them.’”Here we see that Yahusha is teaching His students to be
servants 
, as He Himselfcame to serve. If we read past this, and look for other meanings such as ananointing ritual, we miss a great deal. Look at the same situation from theaccount of doctor Luke,
and the real teaching emerges very clearly.
At thetime Yahusha was washing their feet, His students were
debating among themselves over who was the greatest 
(or most trustworthy of His followers),and
a dispute 
 was erupting over how superior each one was:Luk 22:21-27:“‘But see, the hand of him delivering Me up is with Me on the table.For indeed the Son of Adam goes as it has been decreed, but woe to that man bywhom He is delivered up!’ And they began to ask among themselves, which ofthem it could be who was about to do this.And
there also took place a dispute 
 among them,
as to which of them seemed to be greater 
.And He said to them, ‘The sovereigns of the gentiles rule over them, and thosewho control them are called ‘workers of good.’ But not so with you, but let himwho is greatest among you be as the youngest, and the leader as one whoserves.For who is greater, the one who sits at the table, or the one who serves? Is it notthe one who sits at the table? But I am in your midst as the One who serves.’”Yahusha was teaching them to become servants, and the “greatest” one amongthem would be the one that learned to serve. In that same context, after Hehad washed their feet, He told them:Joh 13:34, 35:“ ‘A renewed command I give to you, that you love one another, asI have loved you, that you also love one another.By this shall all know that you are My taught ones, if you have love for oneanother.’ ”

The greatest lesson, to be a humble servant, and to not allow pride to rule and reign in our lives. Only the "pure in heart" will see Yahu'ah! May our hearts be circumcised with purity, so we may behold King/Sovereign Yahu'ah Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) as He is seated upon His throne. He is revealing Who He is during this time.
