Jesus modeled the practice of foot-washing to demonstrate the need to be submissive to one another, to serve one another, including those who betray.
Many people believe that our sins are the focus of Passover—but they are wrong! Jesus Christ, the Passover Lamb, should be our focus. How well do you know Him?
We must thoroughly examine ourselves, exercising and strengthening our faith, actively giving love back to God, to avoid taking Passover in a careless manner.
Footwashing is the initial part of the Passover ceremony. Why did Christ institute it? What is its purpose?
Equivocating with the expression 'as oft as you drink it in remembrance of me,' many believe they can observe the Lord's Supper monthly, weekly, or daily.
Many consider the footwashing at Passover merely as a ritual to remind us of the need to serve one another. But it teaches another godly attribute: forgiveness.
Here are the foundational principles to keep in mind in observing the Feasts of God throughout the year.
We need to be sobered at the awesomeness of the cost to set us free from sin—what the Creator endured. We have been purchased, and are obliged to our Purchaser.
When God calls us and redeems us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we suddenly come under obligation—a debt we cannot pay but overshadows all we do.
Just as a seed must die to itself in order to bear fruit, we also must sacrifice our lives, submitting unconditionally to God's to bear abundant fruit.
I Corinthians gives ready instruction in the order and decorum that is fitting for church organization, as well as the Passover and weekly service.
