Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 217

  1. “A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet” (John 13:10).

Given that there’s no indication of Peter or the others bathing prior to this particular evening, one wonders what Jesus might be referring to in this statement. He goes on to point out that one of them isn’t clean (Judas) because his heart is soiled by betrayal. It seems Jesus is showing us that we must have God’s daily washing, even though our hearts our pure. Peter, and most of the others, are genuine in their pursuit of Jesus. Unlike Judas, their hearts aren’t divided but they are wholeheartedly following after their Master. Still, they must be washed for each of their lives have been touched by sin.
