John 3:1-17

It was before the Feast of Passover, and Jesus realized that the hour had come for him to pass from this world to God. He had always loved his own in this world, but now he showed how perfect this love was...During supper, Jesus rose from the table, took off his clothes and wrapped a towel around his waist. He then poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and dry them with the towel that was around his waist…

After washing their feet, Jesus put his clothes back on and returned to the table. He said to them, "Do you understand what I have done for you? You call me 'Teacher,' and "Sovereign'--and rightly, for so I am. If I, then--your Teacher and Sovereign--have washed your feet, you should wash each other's feet. I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you."

"The truth of the matter is, no subordinate is greater than the superior; no messenger outranks the sender. Once you know all these things, you'll be blessed if you put them into practice."
