2 Abstract Significance Biblical Background Practice from the ages Status Transformation

3 Caution Dear Brethren in Christ, Be clear about why we are Re-Visiting this Forgotten Ordinance is Based on the following reasons with the help of Thy Spirit: (Matthew- 5:19 [KJV]) Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (James- 2:10 [KJV]) For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all. So, Let us Examine ourselves; to the extent of Humble Attitude Service! Amen

4 Significance Foot washing or washing of feet is a religious Rite observed as an Ordinance by several Christian denominations The name, and even the spelling, of this practice is not consistently established Is a religious Ceremony observed as an Ordinance A Symbol of Brotherhood and Cleansing Its root is an Act of Love done with Humble Attitude

5 Biblical Background The root of this practice appears to be found in the hospitality customs of ancient civilizations, especially where sandals were the chief footwear. A typical Eastern host might bow, greet, and kiss his guest, then offer water to allow guest to wash their feet or have servants do it. A host would provide water for guests to wash their feet, provide a servant to wash the feet of the guests or even serve the guests by washing their feet. This is mentioned in several places in the Old Testament of the Bible Genesis 18:4; 19:2; 24:32; 43:24; I Samuel 25:41

I Samuel 25:41 is the first passage where an honored person offers to wash feet as a sign of humility. (Note: here Davids future wife is offered this service to his servants) In John 12, Mary of Bethany anointed Jesus' feet presumably in gratitude for raising her brother Lazarus from the dead, and in preparation for his death and burial.
