Why Jesus Washed his Disciple's Feet (Part IV)

Did you notice that Judas was not present when Jesus washed the feet of the other disciples?

Verse 5 actually refers to him in the sense that he didn’t have fellowship with Jesus even though he was a disciple. The Apostle John wrote this epistle to believers in the church of that day. It is possible to be a part of the church but not a part of him. Why? Because of hardness of the heart. The religious leaders of that day certainly held the highest positions in the synagogues but they absolutely did not have a relationship with Christ.

They chose to believe in their own righteousness rather than the grace of God and by doing so were deceived by their own minds. They chose to walk in the darkness of the prison of their own flesh rather than the light of the word of God. Jesus told them that he didn’t come to heal those who were well but those who were sick. Since the religious leaders believed they had no sin, there was nothing that he could do for them. The masses in most cases actually recognized their own depraved spiritual condition and Jesus as their Lord.
