It’s About Him

The emphasis in this ordinance is not on what we do, but rather on what Christ has done. In John 13:4 we read: “[Jesus] rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself.” Never in the history of the human race has there been a more arresting scene than that of Jesus washing the feet of His disciples. In this incident was revealed the great truth that salvation involves more than what we do for God—it also includes God … humbling Himself to serve us. It symbolizes the humiliation of Jesus in behalf of humanity. It pictures God’s work for us as an act of cleansing—washing away pride, selfishness, and arrogance … sins that we pick up like dust along the paths of life.” “What could Jesus do that would have reflected His godlikeness more perfectly than the simple act of washing the disciples’ feet? No sermon could have said so eloquently what Jesus said by that act of love. With sublime artistry and dramatic forcefulness the Master left in our minds the picture of Himself, kneeling, towel in hand, before ordinary men.” “This service is infinitely more than an evidence of humility in us. It is a memorial of the humiliation of the Savior of mankind. Thus, the service has a profound meaning. It reminds the worshiper of the grace of God as effectively as do the bread and the wine.… This service teaches the perfect way to level barriers between races and classes of people. … It is a graphic reminder of the greatest event that ever happened in the universe —the act of Jesus in giving Himself to save the world.”

The Lord’s Supper is a participation in the emblems of the body and blood of Jesus as an expression of faith in Him, our Lord and Savior. In this experience of communion Christ is present to meet and strengthen His people. As we partake, we joyfully proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes again
