spiritual things does the casual contact differ ftom the
touch of faith. To believe in ChrIst merely as the Saviour
of the world can never bring healing to the soul. The
faith that is unto salvation is not a mere assent to the
truth of the gospel. True faith is that which reeeiyes
Christ as a personal SavlOur."-M.H., p. 62.

NOTE: "Now, having washed the disciples' feet, He
said, 'I have given you an example, that ye should do as
"I have done to you.' In these words Christ was not merely
enjoining the practise of hospitality. More was meant
than the washing of feet of the guests to remove the
dust of travel. Christ was here instituting a religious
service. By the act of our Lord this humiliating ceremony
. wasmade\a consecrated ordinance. It was to be observed
"l:Joy the di&:Cip!es, fhat they mIght ever keep in mind His
. 'lesson of Humility and service."-D.A., p. 650. •
5. For what will thejJrdinance of feet-washing prepare
us? EIV1iPA#cE i6 -hlV-VJ//7
ANSWER: "This ordinance is Christ's appointed pre-
. paration for the sacramental service. While pride, vari-
ance, and strIfe for supremacy are cherished, the heart
-cannot enter into fellowship with Christ. We are not pre-
pared to receive the communion of His body and his blood.
Therefore it was that Jesus appointed the memorial of His
. h miliation to be first observed."-D.A., p. 650.

supper has been spread. The unleavened cakes
of- used at the Passover season are before Him. The Pass-
1!O.C/.fI over wine, untouched by fermentation, is on the table.
"} These emblems Christ employs to represent His own un-
/' "blemished sacrifice. Nothing corrupted by fermentation, the
symbol of sin and death, could represe·nt the 'Lamb with-
out blemish and without spot.' "-D.A., p. 653.
