Today is “Maundy Thursday which is the story of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet on the eve of Passover and tomorrow is Good Friday followed by Black Saturday and then Easter Sunday.”The name "Maundy Thursday" is derived from Jesus "mandate" to love one another as he loves us... I remember growing up in a church were feet washing was part of the Holy Week Celebration... it is a powerful testimony to us all who are call to serve... in which we find love for others.... feet washing has been a significant act throughout the old black Church....you had some churches that wash feet before communion and some who did not... growing up I would ask why are they doing this...now I understand what is behind this practice of feet washing... it help us understand Jesus thinking.... it's not robbery to take the feet of the disciples who would take the Gospel into the world...the idea of living out personal victory with our feet is very powerful...for example...we can walk away from sin by walking to life.
